“Excellent for young kids.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Very appealing to young kids during the summer.
Because of its popularity, it tends to get overcrowded. If you go late in the morning, you may have to wait for a long time outside before you can be allowed to enter.

“"it changed"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

i use to go there as a kid, but now its a complete rip off. Its very expensive for a full day. There are way too many kids that take a "dump" in the pool everyday from this, They always close the pool, and when they do, its for at least 2 hours. They have older teenage lifeguards that don't notice much that goes on. There are never enough shaded or just plain seats, you have to sit on the dirty grass and get sunburned to death. There are always swarmed bugs that follow you everywhere you go, and the little pizza shop they have there ALWAYS runs out of supplies, like smoothies and even just plain pizza.

“Always a fun day for the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

We are locals who visit here a few times each summer. The kids (ages 2-6) always enjoy it. It's a nice size, clean, convenient, fun and relatively inexpensive. The downside is that it can get quite crowded at peak hours, so you need to arrive about 15-20 minutes before open or later in the day. Lifeguards are EXTREMELY attentive and seem to keep the place running well.
