  • This was my first time back since I was a kid in the early '60's, and it was even bigger and better than I remembered!
  • 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 hours are awful!!! Needs to either open earlier or stay open later!!!!
  • 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.
