Civil Rights Protests Against Segregated Corrigan Drive Pool
During the late 1940s and 1950s, African Americans held a series of "wade-ins" at the Corrigan Drive pool which was located here and predated the construction of the current wave pool in South Park. Officially, the county-operated pool was open to everyone, although informally and in practice, the pool was only open to whites. African Americans were expected to attend the pool on One Hundred Acres Drive, known popularly as "Sully's Pool." Sully's pool was open between 1938 and 1977.
