Four nights out of seven we could be found swimming at Royal Pool, Toprol XL treatment, dining on sandwiches or pizza or leftovers.

  2. [...] When housing was hot, someone turned a single family house in ChrisMoreau’s Springfield, Va. neighborhood into a group home for immigrants. And then came the housing bust. [...]

    Over in Kings Park West, things are pretty similar. We had a split foyer Brady Bunch-style house like that across the street that a series of Korean investors were trying to flip. Eventually, they split it into two apartments. The renters were nice enough except when they were parking on the grass. It, too, was foreclosed on and sold by the bank. There is now a nice single Korean family living there with their kids. It’s a huge improvement.

    Wow,
    sorry to hear about Royal Pool. I grew up in Kings Park in the 1980-1992 timeframe and frequented Royal pool. Parliment has, however, always been the better pool. They had an active community board, whereas Royal’s was kinda lax. Anyway, keep the Park going!
    I have one question, what happened to the Royal Pool Complex?

    CS:
    The pool was bulldozed and filled in, covered over with grass. The property was picked up by Fairfax County to expand King’s Park Park, since the existing park and the pool property abutted. There has been talk about putting a pavilion up and I think there is a meeting coming up with the county on what further, if anything, will be done with the property.

    I grew up in Kings Park too – you should’ve seen the neighborhood back in the ’70s/’80s. The empty nesters that were leaving when you arrived all had large families and were very involved in the neighborhood. I remember streets being shut down every year for block parties. Halloween night looked like Times Square. As a kid I could walk/bike to the pool, park, school, dentist, doctor, grocery, drug store, or hardware.

    Thanks to expired HOA covenants, you can do just about anything you want to your property in Kings Park – and people have. By the ’80s it seemed like another one of these great families left every year to move to Burke.

    A few years back my mother finally stopped buying candy for trick-or-treaters, and only knew a couple of neighbors. Then an all-out boarding house opened at the corner of Kings Park Drive and Victoria Road – pathetic.

    We belonged to Royal Pool. Right on that Parliament members looked down on us…but, I finally realized that they should have – they had a better pool. Royal’s biggest problem was that it was built in a forest. There were about 2 hours during the day that the sun hit the water, which produced about 2 weeks in the summer when the pool wasn’t freezing. Kids hate that. It was a shame to see the pool go – it would be needed if the neighborhood ever recovered.

    I sure hope it does – Kings Park was a great place to grow up.

  8. Hi there. I am going to check it, since I saw a comment in another site regarding \”It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood\”. Someone related to candy wrapping supplies. Thanks anyway.

    Stumbled onto your posting about KP and Royal Pool. My family was one of the original owners (1962) in the first block of houses built which consisted of Cromwell and Victoria between Kings Park Dr and Parliament Dr. We had the King model (Cape Cod style) and were on Victoria just two houses down from Parliament Dr. That section of Victoria was a great sledding hill. We were a Navy family, so we lived there about 4 yrs, moved away for 6 and then came back for another 5-6. I think we added one of the first additions in the neighborhood, bumping out the back of the house. After I graduated from LBSS in 1976 my parents moved out to Fairfax but kept the KP house for another dozen years. It’s too bad about Royal Pool. We used to hang out there all the time and it had a really competitive swim team back in the early days. KP Park and the woods that surround it were a great play area in the days when we wandered the neighborhood all day long in the summer and our parents didn’t have to worry about where we were. Heck, I probably climbed around your house while it was being built. I’m glad to hear that it is still a good neighborhood, My parents had offered to sell my wife and I our old house, but we weren’t ready for that task at the time. Maybe we should have! Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

    Thanks, Mark & KP Vet. It’s nice to have the perspective. I still think KP is a great place. My kids love the schools, we have parks and lots of other kids, cub scouts and brownies, creeks and pools and parks.
    Everything changes and we’re rolling with it. Sad to see some things change but happy for other improvements. I’m glad my kids are getting to grow up here.

    We just bought a place in KP and are excited to plant roots and eventually raise a family there. It’s really interesting to hear about the history and evolution of the neighborhood. Thanks for the info

    @Provans: Welcome to the neighborhood. I hope you love it as much as we do.

    I agree, Kings Park was a great place to grow up. Our house was on Cromwell Drive. We were there from the late 60’s until the early 80’s. Our house backed up to the creek which backed up to the park with basketball courts (gone), tennis courts, baseball field, playground and pool. Growing up in the 70’s in that setting was ideal. The swim team at Royal was rocking with a lot of support form the swim team families. Back then there was a steak and shrimp night as a fundraiser and it ran until the kegs were dry. Every 4th of July there was a parade, they would grease a watermelon and drop it in the pool and whoever managed to get it out first got to keep it. In the evenings in the summer occasionally the park system would bring in a mobile bandstand and if I remember correctly the Fairfax County Orchestra would play. The kids could walk to school without adult supervision with crossing guards at every corner. We could ride our Schwinn Stingrays up to Kings Park Shopping Center to buy candy or sodas at People’s Drug Store (gone) or Giant or get a slice of pizza at Fortuna restaurant (gone). My son who is 14 now loved to hear stories from when I was a kid growing up there and through the years we have visited several times. He loved jumping across the creek at various points like we used to on a dare. Well I have already gone on too long. It is nice to see current residents taking pride in the old hood. Hopefully it will be a strong family neighborhood again with families and new kids bringing it back to life.

  14. My sister and I really have to thank you, this was very good to read..

  15. Ben E says:

    This was so nice to read. I grew up in King Park. My parents moved there in 1982 or 1983, when I was about a year old, and I lived there until 1999. Shame about Royal Pool. We used to go there nearly every day during the summer, walking from Victoria & Thames, usually unsupervised. We’d spend the whole day there until the place shut down, buying ice pops and playing Uno and trying to touch that grate at the bottom of the deep end of the pool…

    And the creek! I spent so many days hopping around the creek…

    Good times.

  16. Wendy says:

    I grew up in Kings Park and went to Royal. I swam on the team and coached it for many years while managing the pool. I have many happy memories of the pool and the neighborhood. It was a wonderful pool with many great families. I only wish the pool could have held on a few more years so I could have taken my own kids.

  17. Paul says:

    Just landed on this site. Its great to read about KP neighbors from the 60’s. We moved to Parliament Dr in 1962. When Royal Pool opened in 63? I was the first kid in the door. The lifeguard said “into the shower first!” Anyway, us boys jumped in and it was cold alright. The place was always full. The teenagers seemed old and were diving off the boards. There was the children’s slide. Some lifeguard tossed in a roll of pennies and the kids would dive in to collect them. One coin was a winner for a $10 prize. Also remember when Parliament Pool was added near Southampton. It was huge, like a parking lot! Royal park was great too. Plenty of creeks to play in and the small baseball field. We had boys club football there in the Fall.
