We were in Palm Springs for a couple of weeks and this was a nice break from the pool at the condo. Kids liked the slide. We were there for a couple of hours. I won't consider it an all day place to hangout.

The kiddie pool was closed because it was off season (November). However, the shallow pool was still a nice way to kill some time on a sunny afternoon. The pool itself seemed clean but the change-rooms were dirty and needed to be cleaned.

Fun place to take the children/grand children for a "cool" fun day in the water. Several different water areas for all ages. Clean, a bit tried, but generally good value for a day of fun in the warm temperature's.

This is a very well run swimming facility. The lifeguards keep very good order and the grounds are very tidy. We have been here many times in the past two years.
