Yes. I remember the wading pool for little kids in the Parkchester North Quadrant. This would have been in the late 40s, maybe a little later.

By the early 50's all the Parkchester wading pools had been shut down forever and filled in with concrete and made part of the regular playground floor. This was due to the polio epidemic that hit New York (and elsewhere) those years.
