Another new entry is the Anderson Athletic Park Pool. Built in 1925, it is one of only a few swimming pools remaining of the 130 constructed across America following an unusual design by engineer Wesley Bintz. Bintz patented an egg-shaped above-ground pool that incorporated dressing rooms under the structure. That meant less excavation and lower construction costs. Sidelined since 2007, it’s now threatened by vandalism and deterioration.
