Wow! Found this link today on GOOD's website: http://www.good.is/post/picture-show-absence-...
Made me wonder about our old stomping grounds at NCR as kids. This is an amazing transformation! I knew they closed the pool, but in my head I had pictured dilapidated ruins not this gorgeous landscaping.
Last I was there would have been about 25 years ago.

Two girlfriends took me there, in the 1970s and 1980s, their dads being employees, you see. Joyce and Marie Jean, two little cuties.

I was fortunate to have life guarded there in late 50's and early 60's. Tremendous pool, had 5,000 plus in pool area on hot Sunday, 16 life guard posts around pool, one plane 2' to 12' at boards. Wonder where all the old guards are ?

She was Mary Jean, who worked at the Custom Car Wash on North Main Street, she being petite and sweet, like Joyce was.

I was a guard there in the summers of 1975,1976. Had the best time of my life! The park was a great place to work and I have many fond memories of the people I met then.
