Blakeley's Pool with the Very High Diving Platform

Nothing struck fear into a young boy like the high dive tower at Blakely's. Or perhaps you preferred the water slide at Maple Plunge. But to a young man, Lake Millerton or Lost Lake was the destination. Remember the ice rink in Pinedale? Post your favorite Summer Activity here.

I remember Blakeley's. To me it was the most special of all the public pools. I remember it was a really big pool. I remember the high dives and the tower. There was also a mini golf course next to the pool. I remember Blakeley's being in a large park. We had several picnics there. Blakeley's was pretty far from my house so I didn't get to go there as often as I went to Airways.

My father and mother managed Golden Tee in the early 70's and I knew the pool very well. Played there when empty. Yes, there was a tile mosaic mermaid in the kiddy pool at the shallow end. I worked the snack shack there when I turned 13 back in the day. Good memories.
