This wicked outdoor pool has an amazing 180-foot waterslide, ideal for big kids. You can watch your daredevil zoom down the slide, while supervising your little guy in the shallow area. After a morning in the water, kids can check out the nearby playground or toss the ball around on the volleyball or basketball courts. There’s an electric barbecue if you’re thinking of bringing some hot dogs along. And don’t forget your spare change! There’s also cool concession stand loaded with sweet treats.

3. Lathey Pool
Who’s ready for a day of family fun? Your kids are going to love the ginormous twisty waterslide at Lathey Pool. They’ll want to spend the whole day going down it—yahoo!

You’re going to want to spend the whole day at Mayfair Pool because there’s lots to do. With five lanes for swimmers to practise their backstroke and a diving board for future Olympians, your big kids won’t want to get out of the water. Well, they’ll get out, but only so they can go down the awesome waterslide. Your little minnow has her own pool, complete with a kiddie slide and dripping palm tree to keep her cool. When it’s time to dry off, make use of the indoor multi-purpose room and picnic area (with a barbecue pit!) before heading home for nap time.
