Be aware that two of the courts are not as "sun-friendly" in that one player is often facing the sun until early afternoon, at least in the winter. We could see... More

We were able to experience the Halloween bash on our last day in Fort Myers and the folks there were great and very friendly to out of towners. We will be back for the pool and slides next year!

i wanted to go here to entertain my toddler for the day, and found the park and waterpark were for the school only. the public area park was dirty, run down looking. there are baseball diamonds, but i'm not sure if they're open to public use or not
