Pete Peterson Lodge

Pete Peterson Lodge

situated in the NE corner of Lagoon Park, on the lake edge and sort of tucked up  under the plateau formed during WW II to facilitate extension of the Gunter Field runways. The lodge started as a picnic place and rec area which the AF provided for its airmen. I know it predates 1958, because that year I was hired by Maxwell Engineering to add toilets. The facility was acquired by the City as part of the land returned by DOD in the 1970s. The Montgomery Parks and Rec Dept apparently does a nice job in upkeep of the 2400 sf structure and its surrounds, which are used for many family, church and company outings. But sad to say, this secluded park has now become known as a major center for homosexual activity.
