  • I've been going to the batting cages for years. I assumed the pool only had things for kids, but there are several lap lanes blocked off and an "adult leisure lane" for people who just want to cool off without risking a kid jumping on them. Lifeguards are paying attention and plenty of open lounge chairs. I visited on a weekday though. I imagine weekends are different. I just wish they'd stay open one hour later, so I could potentially get here for a quick dip after work.
  • The mini golf is alright but the course itself could be more fun as it doesn't have all the obstacles and things you might find at beach mini golf courses. The holes themselves could be built a bit better as some of them are very shallow so it's easy for the balls to pop out. The batting cage is fairly typical for an outdoor cage but for those of you who are good hitters, be warned that the fast pitch baseball cage only goes up to a little over 70 mph. For $12, you can get unlimited use per person of all the facilities including the swimming pool for the day.
  • Probably should let people know online that the cages don't operate on Mondays and Tuesdays
  • Great place! Batting cages open til 9pm weekdays, 10pm weekend.
  • Good before noon
