The Harold “Skinny” Spatz Memorial Park

In 2001, a new shelter house was erected in the southern part of the city.  It was designed to accommodate family gatherings. Along with restroom facilities, it provides shelter from the seasons but yet opens to the outside to bring in the nice weather! The land was donated to the city by Caroline Busboom, who eventually married Bob Spatz the brother of Skinny. Therefore the park was honorably named after the local World War II hero from Lebo. “Skinny” was one of the pilots who flew in the Doolittle Raid and lost his life while imprisoned by the Japanese.

The City Pool is a great place to cool off in the summer months. The pool opens a little before school gets out and closes a month after school starts up in the fall. The pool also includes Aquacise classes.
