Last Summer at the Olympic

Tessa Berg

If you're feeling nostalgic and want to head back in time for the afternoon, you must visit the Olympic Swim Club in Clintonville. This family-run pool opened in 1938. Sadly, after this summer, it will be closing for good. As soon as you walk through the old turnstile you are transported to a simpler time with kids laughing and lifeguards blowing whistles atop their old-fashioned chairs. The welcoming staff is more than happy to tell you all about the pool's long history-several athletes who competed in the summer Olympics came from across the United States to train at the club. This is your last chance to enjoy this neighborhood gem, so be sure the get out for some summer fun!
