A very nice feature of the young Branch Brook Park was a cove slightly north of the Park Avenue Bridge where children could swim and splash around. I have included a photo of a map of the park from 1926 On this map the alcove appears on the left side shaped like an ear with an odd little island at its mouth. This area has since been filled in.
