Great pool!

Nice pool, good temperature and nice people, from workers to other swimmers. Kids area is fenced in for safety, and great slides and play area.

We had so much fun. We were visiting from out of state so we had to pay a higher price. The kids had a great time on the slides. I enjoyed the relaxing tanning ledge in the water. There were little adventure type areas for the younger children which I thought was wonderful. They also have a selection of swimming... More

My family & I loved this aquatic center. There was something for everyone. A baby area, a children's area with small slides and a small fort, a lazy river, 3 bigger water slides for adults and older children, and of course the pool area. We could have spent all day relaxing here if it wasn't for my one year old... More

Sholem is a really fun pool! The kids area is completely fenced in, which is super great if you have more than one child you're looking after. Even though the pool is a bit older, they update the features regularly so it doesn't ever feel stale. The lazy river is great, and the tube slides are way fun!

I went there with my family and friends on June 26th after 3 pm when it wasn't so hot and we had a lot of fun. As adults we stayed in the pool for a long time, clean pool with perfect temperature. With my 2 year old son we spent most of the time in the slides area. It was... More

But that's really it. Tons and tons of kids..everywhere. Not really a place for an adult to go relax. The lazy river is cool but again kids are splashing and running into and screaming constantly. No diving board or deep end. Small lap lane. Again, this place is awesome for children. Life guards are everywhere which is great. Good place... More

Me & my husband went & it was terrible there was nothing for single adults to really enjoy or do. It stinks that the city shut down the only adult swimming pool.

Wow what a great place to take the family. We have been to many aquatic centers and this is one of the better centers! The life guards are some of the most professional and on top of things I've seen yet. Fun for the while family from toddler to teen!

I loved this little water park. My daughters really enjoyed it as well, even though the younger one couldn't use the slides. Very clean with friendly staff.
