Does anybody have any pictures of Barbrook Park in it's hey-day? I found a "trespassers" website with pictures of the pool, diving board and one of the lifeguard stands as they were just before the pools were filled in. I remember it being a pretty cool place, and hate that it ended up like it did. We use to go with my church back in the late 60's and 70's, & the last time I was there would have been with my 8th grade end-of-the-year picnic, spring of '81. From info I've gathered it closed not too long thereafter. It was alot like Burgers lake with the trees and picnic areas, but the pool(s?) weren't spring-fed. They had horseshoe pits too, as I remember. It was in Haltom City, behind a mobile home park on Belknap, I think, and you went past a graveyard, down a steep gravel road to a clearing were you parked, and the pool area was off to your left, IIRC. What's proposed for the site now? I know the pools were filled in, but does anything else remain? Nothing sadder than an abandoned park...

Here's the website ref. above:
