One of my old swimming holes

The pond on South Summit Farms Road
East of Jane Street in King City

Between 1955 and 1960, this man-made lake was a favourite swimming spot for me and many of my teen-aged friends, including Dave and Joan Flucker, whose parents, Jim and Liz owned a sizeable chunk of the shoreline and a beautiful home.   While King City is booming with new, sprawling residential development, this part of the village is still an oasis.   One hopes it retains its pastoral landscape for a long time to come.
Please comment if you wish.
