This is a terrific addition to Palm Desert. There are three pools with lap swimming, high dives, slides and classes. Great place to work out and also to spend the day. Plenty of chairs and shade too.

Good place for young families because of a wonderful children's pool area. Main pool is frequently tied up with swimming meets or closed because of lack of staff (lifeguards) to monitor swimming. Ergo, limited free swimming for adolescents and adults.

There is plenty of space and different level pools. A lot of shade and grassed areas to sit. The water slide is amongst the pools so it is easy to keep an eye on the kids whilst you are swimming in another pool.

We're here on vacation and our rental house has a nice pool but we thought it would be nice to bring the kids here for the day. We were going to go to Soak City but they aren't open until the weekend so the kids needed to wait until the weekend to go to Soak City.

The kids were disappointed the slides weren't open yet but they still had a lot of fun. They have several different pool areas. The slide area, several lanes of lap pool for people to swim laps and a shallow kids pool.

They have several chairs and umbrellas to use as well as some tables with shades above. It is especially great with very young toddlers. The kids had a lot of fun. They don't allow floats of your own. We had arm floats for our kids who are still learning to swim and they said we couldn't use them and instead rented out float suits for $2 each.

The entrance fee was affordable at $6 for each adult and $3.75 for kids 5 and under (non-residents). There weren't many people there. Just a few people taking swimming lessons for their kids. Kids 6-12 are $4.50 each.

The staff there is very friendly and there is always a lifeguard on duty. There is plenty of free parking in the parking lot. I great place to spend the day with young kids. Or even for adults that want to do some laps.

They had several bathrooms there and they were clean. And they also had a shower in them. So if you wanted to head out after the day to go eat, you can bring soap/shampoo and shower and go directly to where you want to go if you didn't want to go back to your hotel/rental first.
