Lakeway Pool

As summer creeps on, the temperatures creep higher and kids start becoming bored with the same old routine.  

To spice it up, try out a different pool in Austin!

We recently visited the Lakeway pool, located in… you guessed it, Lakeway :o)

This pool is perfect for the wee ones.  In addition to its standard lap pool, this swim center has a graduated beach area with a fun frog sliding board.

For the kids 48 inches and taller there are the two tall slides as well as a lilly pad crossing area.  The lilly pads area was fun to watch, as the kdis attempted to cross in any manner than the expected – rarely touching the rope conveniently hung across the top to assist!

And another draw to this unique pool is the giant chess board.  What better way to exercise the mind after exercising the body!

Tips and Thoughts

* The pool is closed on Monday and does not open until noon on the other days

* Entrance to the pool for non-residents is $5 for children and $6 for adults

* There is a snack bar with light food available.  There are also some shaded picnic tables if you choose to bring your own

* Children must be 48 inches to go down the slide and must be able to touch the rope on the lily pads.  We saw at least one little tike turned away with tears as he wasn’t tall enough.  So if you have wee ones, you might want to forewarn them!
