Old Mill Beach

Old Mill Bathing Beach, Paramus NJ

Great place!
Personally Visited: Yes
Trespassing Signs: Kinda
Patrolled: Kinda

In Paramus sits the Old Mill Bathing Beach, closed for literally decades, its sits abandoned and fenced in, waiting to get reopened. Nearest I can tell, dirt bikers ride around in the sand of the pool's bottom but otherwise it sits untouched. It was an easy find, but we got spooked when we saw some dude walking around in the woods behind us, kinda checking us out, so we took our last shots and went on our merry way.
My dad remembers going there for a trip when he was in the third grade (he was born in '56, so figure this was the early sixties) and seeing his Uncle Eugene there with someone other than his Aunt Dorothea and yea the rest is part of my comically dysfunctional family's history.
I think this is where my grandparents first met. Kinda strange because my grandmother lived in Jersey City and grandfather from Hoboken, originally Ireland. It was either this one or Graydon Pond in Ridgewood. More likely, this one.
So if you wanna look at it like that, The Old Mill Bathing Beach holds an interesting place in my family. And the funny thing is, thousands drive past it every day and wouldn't give it a second thought.
