YMCA of York members throw beach balls into the old Farquhar Park Pool for the last time in September 2007. Demolition of the old pool is now complete. A sketch of its replacement, the Graham Aquatic Center, is below. Background post: Good grief, how long has that pool been there?
The Boys Club Pool, more recently called the Farquhar Park Pool, is no more – giving way to a new indoor/outdoor pool complex.
But a former Yorker, now living in the Downingtown area and with family members still here, is looking for a picture of the pool of old.
Here’s Jill Ruth’s request:
I am seeking help in finding a picture of the Old Boys Club Pool from the 1970’s. The pool had the American Flag and the island in the deep end. I would be willing to purchase the photo, I just can’t seem to locate anyone with access to one. It is for a Christmas past gift for my sisters. If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be greatly appreciate it!
