Logana Pool and Waterslide
After a library visitor recently asked about the Logana facility, I learned a great bit about local entertainment history.
Logana Plunge was located at 415 West and 1400 North around five artisan wells, four of which were geothermally heated, 80 degree water. The first swimming hole on the site was constructed in the 1920's. Soon a roof was constructed over the pool, but this roof collapsed in the mid-1960's during a heavy snowfall.
Ken and Marie Lindquist bought the pool in 1970 from Blaine Spencer. They soon added a slide for little kids and baseball batting cages along with other improvements. The swimming pool was finally closed in 1992. It is reported that Logan City considered buying the facility, but decided instead to construct the Logan Aquatic Center which currently serves the citizens of Logan at 451 South 500 West.
