Wonderland Pool behind the Skating Rink

Wonderland swimming pool was at Blackstone and Shaw behind Wonderland Skating Rink. It was a hotel with a large pool that they would open to the public during the summer.

Wonderland was where Torinos is off Blackstone and Shaw. The KYNO millionaire would throw silver dollars into the pool so kids could dive for them.

Wonderland was at Blackstone and Shaw behind the old Blackstone Bowl. It was an apartment complex that opened during summer, cost was a dime or quarter. It had a high dive, snack bar, lockers and was a great place to go!

It was Wonderland when I went there. I remember hearing "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" there on my transistor radio for the first time. Maybe it later morphed into Soupie. There was also a Wonderland roller skating rink.
