Our new community pool is great for little kids. About half the pool is only a foot deep. The other half is four feet deep.
The slide at our old pool went into ten feet of water and the kids weren't allowed to wear floaties while going down it. So you had to tread water to catch your non-swimming child! At our new pool the water is only 4 feet where the slide ends and the kids can wear floaties.
The one thing they need is more lounge chairs. The pool opens at 10:00 and by 11:00 all the chairs are taken. And that was on a week day!
