If you ever wondered where Clint Eastwood got those trademark squinty eyes, it may have been from staring into the sunset while lifeguarding at our own Kennydale Beach park.
“Lean and tall, stripped to his trunks, lolling in his chair or pacing the sand, Clint carved quite a figure at Kennydale Beach in Renton, where he was assigned. ‘He was a nice-looking young kid, well built, said George D. Wyse, the athletics supervisor for King County who hired Clint. ‘He drew quite a gang of young ladies around him.” “There are stories,’ added Penny Wade, chief of budget and personnel for King County Parks nowadays. ‘He never had to bring his lunch. He never had to do any of the normal duties like beach clean-up, because all the girls would do it for him.”
