Japanese Village Deer Park Closed Buena Park CA


Japanese Village Deer Park Buena Park CA

  • The Japanese Village and Deer Park is a defunct amusement park formerly located in Buena Park, California
  • The Deer Park opened in 1967 on a 32-acre site on Knott Avenue, close by the Santa Ana Freeway. It was the brainchild of Allen Parkinson, who also owned the Movieland Wax Museum on Beach Boulevard in Buena Park
  • Inspired by a deer park in Nara, Japan, Parkinson brought a little corner of Nippon to Orange County. It featured koi ponds, a five-acre Japanese garden, a classic tea house, pearl divers and martial arts exhibitions.
  • principal attractions of the park were the beautiful deer, 300 of which were imported from Japan
  • Declining attendance was cited as reason for closing the park in 1975, but not before tragedy struck. More than 200 deer tested positive for tuberculosis and eventually the whole herd was destroyed
