Fallsmead@50 Fun Facts
Ah, Using the Pool in the 1960s. . .
Posted on May 16, 2018 12:25 PM by Melani Miller Harig
The very first Pool Rules that came out when the pool opened in 1969 required all women, as well as men with hair longer than 5 inches, to wear bathing caps in the pool. Everyone was also required to take a soap shower before using the pool. If you left the pool area or used the toilet facilities, you had to take a second shower before you could go back in the pool.
The Fallsmead pool in July 1969 right after the pool first opened. The picture was taken from the top of the old high dive. Photo from the Fallsmead 25th Anniversary Book. View the full 1969 Pool Rules on the Fallsmead History Page
