In the 1960s the pool was the social hub of America

Swimming in a pool at night with the underwater lights on was a treat.

Few thrills in life can compare to the excitement of visiting your local public pool in the 1960s. It was a place to relax and have fun with friends and the hub of social life in the summers. The public pool was an option for those who couldn’t afford their own pool. Many people went to be with their friends, eat snacks, and hang out as a community. Kids spent almost every summer day there with schoolmates and friends from the neighborhood.
