For the older kid- ages 9-15- this is a great pool. My son loves to dive so he prefers this pool over others. There are pools in town with "attractions" like slides etc. but no diving boards. There is a basic swim pool and then a deeper pool for diving. the pool is busy but not crowded most days in the summer. We wish is were closer to our home so we could bike to it~ but it's worth the drive. I can sit outside, under trees, on the cement steps and read a good book while still keeping an eye on my swimmers.
