Fort Washington Beach

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.

Fort Washington Beach

This one is a real oldie. It was a man made lake with picnic areas, riding stables, and an open air dance floor. I remember as a very young child helping my mother use nail polish to paint nickels in order to advertise the appearance of Red Nichols and his Five Pennies.

I found in a 1953 Fresno Bee that it was located at Friant Road at Old Lanes Bridge (San Joaquin River).
