The Azalea Park Swimming Pool was built and originally operated by the developer of the Azalea Park subdivision, Phillips Properties. Officially managed by Marguerite “Peggy” Phillips with the help of Dixie O’Brian and Betty Hurd, the pool was sold to Betty Hurd in the mid 1960s and she operated the neighborhood’s recreational center until she sold it in 1981. Mrs. Hurd is well known by parents and their children for her Ton Enola Splash Club.
The location is now a Hispanic congregation’s worship center, Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal MI La Dahlia.
