Lots of Erie kids learned to swim here, and many remember skinning their knees on the rough bottom of the cement pool. Another piece of Erie history that holds a special place in the hearts of so many people. The pool has since been filled in, but you can still see its outline as you drive by on the Bayfront Highway.
