It is nice when a city builds something that families with young children can use for free, and this is just that kind of perk. The pool is easy to sit around and very shallow, so the youngsters can splash around to their hearts content

Designated for those 5 years and under, this is a great little splash pool. Free entry in the afternoons, it is a great option to cool off little ones when the big kids are taking over the pool.

My only minor complaints is that it gets pretty dirty by the end of the day. Also, it's nearly impossible to rent in the AM

Not open as of May 1 but the wading pool offers a great respite from the summer heat in the setting of a beautiful city park with all kinds of room to play and also a nice playground. Great family facility.

Small and basic, this pool is good for dipping your feet in on a hot day. A nice addition to an afternoon in the park, but not recommended as a destination except in extreme heat.

Awesome place for families with toddlers 0-5 to swim safely. Free during the summer which is an awesome deal for parents & families. Clean restroom and close to park

As part of my running route, every time I passed the wading pool the sounds of children and families having a great day could be heard wafting through the trees.

The wading pool is a wonderful place to take younger children. Younger kids can play in the shallow water and enjoy the water bubbling up on the edge (where they can crawl or walk in). A bonus is that it is free!

We really like to go to this pool. It's fairly small and only a couple feet deep. And the best part about it is it's free! It's usually very clean, too. And it's right next to the playground. A great choice for an outing with...More
