Amusements for all ages, well managed, clean and fun. From bucket spills to drop slides to a lazy river (that is a bit too lazy), it was great for both a seven and twelve year old. A fantastic place!

I've enjoyed playing in spearfish. Nice area and the competition has gotten better. Reasonable cost to drop in and play Pickleball with down to earth players. My only concern is that we've been placed on the skating rink floor and I've had to put my...More

The rec center is kind of old and small but the outdoor pool is great for small children and teenagers.

Multiple pools. One of the pools was warmer than Evans Plunge. Family changing room available. Coin lockers. Mesh umbrellas block some of the sun.
