  • This is a really really big pool. Taking off a star because the hours are way too short: they close for the season in early August when it is still horribly hot.
  • The pool is really clean but I hate that every year you haft to take the swimming test to go on the slides and swim on the deep side but this is only for kids
  • Took my children and nephew here. They loved it. It was cheap as well. Back home a pool smaller then this cost $5 a person. My girls were upset they couldn't go down the slides but I do understand their rules due to safety. We will be back next year.
  • The hours of this pool are not correct with what is online. Online reads that there is free entry from 10am til 12pm (until Aug 7th). We arrived around 11am, it was closed, sign read it didn't open until 1pm. This is probably the cleanest public pool & waterpark we've ever seen. They check for swimsuits & swim diapers, & u have to shower before pool entry. Very cheap admission too.
  • Admission is inexpensive, but the hours are too short. There are innertubes for rent and free life jackets for the kids. There need to be more lounge chairs.
