GOLDEN - After nearly 50 years, Heritage Square closed for good on June 30.
The Victorian-themed entertainment village in Golden announced the closure on their Facebook page Monday afternoon.
According to the post, the amusement park "reached a settlement with [its] landlord," and will close on Saturday at 7 p.m.
Heritage Square was opened by the Woodmoor Corporation in 1971.
In 2015, the park's alpine slide along with the shops and businesses that made up the Victorian village closed. The amusement park and Victorian Event Center stayed open as stand-alone operations.
"Heritage Square has struggling for a number of years," vice president and general manager David Hagerman said at the time. "It's been uneconomical for many, many years."
The park even put many of the closed buildings up for public sale at the beginning of 2016.
The full post about the closure reads as follows:
PERMANENT CLOSURE: LAST DAY OF OPERATION JUNE 30TH, 2018
We have recently reached a settlement with our landlord, Martin Marietta Materials. After 20 years in business, it is with both sadness and excitement that we announce Heritage Amusement Park and the Garden Grill will permanently close its doors on Saturday June 30th, 2018 at 7pm.
It is now time to say a fond farewell to our home of almost two decades. We are so grateful to our customers, employees, family & friends who have made the experience of running this Amusement Park so rewarding.
