All I know is that by the mid nineties, they were very consistent with kicking people out of there, swimmers and fisherman alike.  It was a fun place to swim, with just a tad bit of illegal activity!

AngryBMXer....
I am starting to conclude that you have problems with rules and/or authority.
Although I can respect that in someone your age do yourself a favor and stop broadcasting these gripes in an adult dominated newspaper forum.  Save it for the myspace blogs or other forums the young people are using.  Rag on things that are not against the law here and we will all be cool.  Trespassing is trespassing no matter how you slice it.. just ask the person with the million dollar moccasins with the bone in it... .gross!

all i was asking was if anyone knew anything about it, i think its a cool place and i wanna know the history.
the skatepark thing is totally diffrent and is a law that shouldnt be that i am trying to shed light on, u kno what i learn in school? stand up for what you believe in. i believe in this and i am going to do all i can to change it. all this thread about is history

Hey, just so you know, there was quite a bit of dumping out there bout ten or so years ago. A lot of dead birds and really cool yellow/green color to the water (like antifreeze). I see its blue again now, but remember, just cause it looks clear and clean doesn't mean it is...
