Ugh... looks like it was plopped down on a parking lot.Nora said:It was asphalt, but not exactly like Kings Dominion. It changed over to aggregate pretty early when it was still called the Old Country. Here is a link to a photo showing the original 1975 asphalt: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=175938945892959&set=a.175938482559672.1073741830.149401725213348&type=3&theater
Interesting I always thought that it was real brick. That's smart of BGW to reuse what they have around it already. Instead of stripping it out, and laying real brick down. I'll have to observe that the next time I go.Nora said:There used to be flat asphalt around it, but that area is now shaped to look like textured brick and painted gray.
Something like this? This is in Oktoberfest (near Darkastle) where you can clearly see how they have added new panels to the area (from Street View).Nora said:The other thing I wish to bring notice to is that the current aggregate ground cover is sectioned in panels all over the park.
Instead of patching up potholes in asphalt that looks horrid after a few years; the sections allow an easy fix of removing one section and re-pouring a new pad.
Look around next time you are in the park and see if one panel looks newer than another. It is a great solution to keeping the park looking beautiful and well maintained.
Okay, so let me get this straight. Currently, in England the only concrete is the stamped brick concrete painted red; while the gray stamped concrete was originally asphalt but was replaced by said gray painted and stamped concrete?Nora said:The red cobblestone path- correct. There used to be flat asphalt around it, but that area is now shaped to look like textured brick and painted gray. The red walkway is still there though.
