The Big Surf Waterpark in Tempe, 1969.

Memories from our childhood can often get mixed-up or muddled, as nostalgia wins out over everything else.

The Tempe History Museum might help you clear that up on Thursday — or you could just feel sentimental — as a panel talks about the Legend City amusement park, which closed more than 30 years ago, and Big Surf.

We talked with Dan Miller, exhibit coordinator at the Tempe History Museum, and Richard Ruelas of The Arizona Republic.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
