The Sonoran Splash Pool is a particular favorite for families since it has a beach-entry pool, a splash pad, and two big waterslides. Kids must be 42" or taller to ride the slides.
The Sunset Beach Pool also holds big appeal since there is white beach sand to play in. With palm trees swaying and plentiful lounge chairs, you'll feel like you made a trip to the coast.
