Abandoned Crystal Pool at Glen Echo Park

Glen Echo Park is a former amusement park featuring the abandoned Crystal Pool and an old streetcar near Washington, D.

I was so naïve coming from southern Texas.  Didn't even realize the park was segregated in 1958 when Phillis and I enjoyed it.

MD, Glen Echo Park didn't open in 1969 - most of the rides and amusement devices were sold off, all but the Dentzel carrousel which has now been restored.

Such fun memories.
