We took our kids here at 3pm on a Sunday, reason being is they are only open weekends during Spring. No big deal, we should have looked at their site earlier to see they would not be open on Monday. However with only 2hrs left before closing, they offer no discount - it's the same price even if you arrived at 10am and spent the entire day.

My 5 year old was very excited for the water slide, however after arriving we saw that you have to be 48" tall. Before entering, we asked the employee if we could ride the slides with the kids, but for safety reasons we could not. What's safer than a parent riding with a kid? My daughter was disappointed but the woman said there was so much more we could do, that is would be a fun day. We reminded her we only had less than 2hrs before closing.

*note after getting home and navigating their site, we found the 48" height rule under #21 of frequently asked questions and the 11th header under General Info (lower than "can i smoke in the park" and what's the water temperature"

We entered and after searching for 10min for somebody to get change for a dollar to put our stuff in the locker (umm, a simple change machine by the lockers is not a genius idea but pretty practical), we went to the lazy river. It is what it is, 9-14 year olds jumping around and having fun, that's fine. But for our 5 and 2.5 yr old, they were quickly bored.

'Regular' Pool:
We went to the regular pool which was about 3.6 feet deep and were quickly told our 2.5 year old couldn't wear her swimmie (for safety reasons), hmmm me thinks it would be a lot safer than letting her sink. A few activities in this pool for 9-13yr olds who were having fun.

Kiddie pool:
For kids under 6. My 5 year old was up to her knees at the deepest point, so she was done with it after 54 seconds. My 2.5 year old was entertained for about 4 minutes.

The other pool:
Was for older kids with diving boards.

We left at that point. We probably would have had a much better experience if we could have ridden the slides with them, that is all kids that age want to do at that age.

For all of the reasons above they got the 1 star...and I didn't even nit-pick the lil things they could have done better.

Sun-n-Fun is a great stop for families visiting Naples as well as locals. It's big enough to offer something for all ages but small enough that you can keep track of kids easily. There are different pools for different ages and the slides are perfect for children older than toddler age. The food available is relatively inexpensive and not bad for park food. There is also a very fun park outside the entrance and an area where you can picnic close by if you don't want to purchase food. This is a don't miss attraction in Naples.

This was a really fun spot for our family. We have a 1 year old and a 3 year old. It was clean and safe and there were plenty of things to do especially for the little ones. Get there early as they stop allowing people in after a certain time.

Great park ! So much to do. Well maintained swings and kids have a well enclosed area which is safe. There is a shade area for "digging" for the kids. Picnic tables present.
clean and safe.
All of this is FREE and right next to the "Lagoon"
Bring your bike or blades and ride the trails.
We love this place and never too crowded.
Catch and watch a softball game, soccer game or even Lacross!
