Pixieland (now closed) was an amusement park located near Otis Junction, Oregon on Hwy 18. It was about three miles north of Lincoln City, the home of The Famous Pixie Kitchen, a popular tourist destination and restaurant.
In 1967, Jerry Parks, the owner of The Pixie Kitchen unveiled a two-million dollar plan for Pixieland, a 57-acre “Fairytale Story of Oregon,” that would include a frontier village, industrial exhibit buildings, canals, a children’s zoo, canoe docks, a treehouse, an Indian village, riverboat, lighthouse, merry-go-round, Ferris wheel and log flume thrill ride. The park also had a train dubbed Little Toot (later renamed Little Pixie).
Then-Governor Tom McCall dedicated Pixieland to the families of Oregon on June 28, 1969. Unfortunately, Pixieland closed within four years. The remains of the park were sold or torn down. The Little Pixie train (renamed Merriweather) and the log flume rides were sold to Lagoon amusement park.
After Pixieland closed, the property became an RV Park and later Trailer home park. Today, what remained of Pixieland has been returned to nature as wetlands to restore the Salmon River estuary which the initial development of Pixieland had disrupted.
A permanent exhibition featuring memorabilia from Pixie Kitchen and Pixieland can be found at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum in Lincoln City, Oregon.
