Auction for Joyland property set for Nov. 7

WICHITA, Kan. The 57-acre property near Pawnee and Hillside that for decades was the home for Wichita's Joyland Amusement Park, goes up for auction Nov. 7.

McCurdy Auction says a new chapter for the former amusement park begins as it's set to auction the Wichita landmark.

"“This is a familiar property, just about everyone has a favorite memory of Joyland,” Braden McCurdy, CEO and auctioneer of McCurdy Auction said in a news release on the company's website “This is a rare opportunity to acquire 57 acres with such strong visibility and accessibility."

McCurdy Auction says the former park will be auctioned in two parcels of 42 and 15 acres, separate and together. The auction, starting at noon Nov. 7 (a Wednesday) will allow people to bid online if they're unable to attend the auction in person.
