This undated photo from The Gazette’s archives shows kids swimming in what looks to be the Rock River. We asked readers online to identify this spot, and about 30 minutes after it was posted, someone emailed us to say that it was across the river from Riverside Park.
Another reader emailed to say that the swing was on the same side of Riverside Park, but upstream. A path from the park and one from the “danger curve” area of Highway 14 took swimmers to the location.
