Many changes have taken place over the years on the corner of 12th and Hickman Avenue.  Right under the Northwest parking lot of the Sportscenter sits a football shaped pool!

History of Owensboro Parks & Recreation Evan Ray Russell

The pool was open to the public, had a diving well, deep end, shallow end, and concrete walkways at each end.

The pool was later filled in to create a parking lot to provide space for sporting events and the Owensboro Ice Arena which was later built andthis facility used the parking lot as well.  I have heard that the shape of the pool is still there!

The Ice Arena has since been torn down and moved the the southwest corner of the property and renamed the Edge Ice Center.
