It's gone now. The old Camp Dodge swimming pool - it was supposed to be the largest outdoor filtered pool in the world. It was built to train soldiers for WWI, later opened to the public. There was a tree called the Reagan Oak or something like that, because supposedly Ronald Reagan would come to the pool when he was a sportscaster in Des Moines in the 1930s, and would park by that tree. I think Dawn, Amber and Brandon put in more hours here than I did.
