Although swimming is no longer allowed in either of the 2 lakes which was created by William Glover and opened in 1927, lovely tranquil Wildwood Lakes originally included a fishing lake and a swimming lake resort which, for years, drew people from many miles around to enjoy a whole day of entertainment.
For 30 years this lake resort often drew as many as 3,000 people a day purchasing tickets for swimming, picnicking and dancing. At times, cars would be backed up from the entrance of the park to a mile’s walk down the dirt road.
Today, Wildwood Lakes continues to attract families seeking to purchase a home to this lovely area. Wildwood Lakes is now a private lake which is owned by the Wildwood Lakes Homeowners Association.
