The Crystal Ballroom,and pool built in 1931
at a cost of $120,000
The Parks Crystal Pool was one of the finest pools in the state at 100 by 200 feet with two water fountains in the west side. It had a high and low board in the diving area.
The pools hours were 10:00 to 10:00 but it was not unusual for the pool to reopen at 1:00 am so that members of the big name bands could go swimming.
Big water shows were put on by Johnny Weismuller (later Tarzan in the movies)and Buster crabbe.
The pool had a sliding board so high that from the top you could see Harbor Hills. Many a kid backed down the steps.
