Swimming done right!
I'm a sucker for a good pool. This year was my first summer off so I made it a point to travel to local districts to visit their pools. Something about Groveport just doesn't compare to the rest, it's in a league of it's own. I have not been in the indoor pool so this review is regarding the outdoor pool. So why do I love it so? Because all that this outdoor space offers. They not only have a kids space with a mini water slide, tons of things spraying out of no where. But they have a splash pad within feet of the main kids area for kids who just want to splash around. This was awesome for Karter (3) because there were times when the pool was just too overwhelming and she just wanted a little breathing room and the splash pad was a perfect place to do it!
They have a huge lazy river, and Kennedy enjoyed jumping off the diving boards along with going down huge water slides. Plenty of seating, and places for Mama to get a tan, both me and the girls were dead tired when we left and nap time lasted awhile (lol). One con (because I am honest), there is no hot food options or concessions. There are only vending machines that take cash only with small snacks inside. I was prepared so I packed a small picnic basket of goodies because swimming keeps kids hungry. I did observe families ordering, or bringing in pizza from local pizza places. Daily rates are $8 for children and adults, and free for children under 2! The amenities were far more than the cons so I give this a rating of 9 out of 10!
