Bye, Bye Beale Park Pool

It was announced recently that city planners had decided to close the Beale Park swimming pool. The pool, which has been enjoyed by children in the Oleander area since 1932, was in need of repair and according to the counsel they ain’t got the cash. They do however have enough money to fill the pool with concrete and build a “water park.” That’s so the kids who are too poor to have their own sprinklers will have some place to go when the heat takes over. Most people are not pleased with the decision.

In a letter in today’s paper Don Enebo of Kernville had this to say, “I am 72, the same age as the Beale Park Pool. Probably don’t hold my water too well either.”
