Randall Swimming Pool


Randall swimming pool is located at South Capital and I street South West, Washington,DC. It's a 25 yard long swimming pool that served the Arthur Capper community as well as neighboring communities. During the long hot summer months it was a place to go cool off or learn to swim. I recall we used to go spend the whole day swimming and then after we would stop past a place called Turkey Town to get Turkey Butts. After swimming all day you would get very hungry. So Turkey Town was the place were you could get 3 Turkey Butts for 25cents. The Turkey Butts were very tasty with the mumble sauce on them.
Today Randall swimming pool is still open to the public.
