This April 17, 2011, aerial shows just how close to the Natatorium the cement plant’s quarry has advanced over the years. The main section is at its maximum depth and the plant is starting to strip off the overburden on the north and west sides to expand in that direction.
The plant’s manager told me that he’s doing everything he can to keep from taking the tiny plot of ground the old indoor pool sits on. Click on the photo to make it larger.

WOW! who knew what was just on the other side of the hill behind the Natatorium.
Last time in there was sometime in 1968. I have driven by it a couple of times since then. That is a spectacular picture.
Old lifeguards are still around I see. If I had seen this picture i would not have gone inside.
Nothing to be afraid of: it’s sitting on solid rock. You may not know it, but there are tunnels from the quarry running under South Sprigg Street.
