Pixieland Restored

OPB | Feb. 3, 2011 12:30 p.m.

Pixieland created fond memories for a generation of Oregon children during the short time the amusement park survived on the coast. Three decades later, the sensitive land Pixieland was built on returns to nature, restored as a natural tidal wetland for the benefit of fish and wildlife.
