When it is hot, you want to be in a cool wet place, so how can a water park get such a low rating? First of all, for a community attraction it is conveniently located, then there is the admission; ah, let's move on. When...More

Added note: check out Lee District Recreation Center for pool access. It would be a bit cheaper...$12.50/daily for pool, fitness ctr, gymnasium, etc.
