Best of the Northwest (Tucson) Pools & Splash Pads. Look for ways to stay cool this summer? Well, we've got some great options for you!.

During the center's "Recreational Swim," featured activities include: the recreation pool, water slide, diving board, and splash pad. Be sure to check their website for specific days and times for the "Recreational Swim." A tip for when you're there: Don't be afraid to ask a lifeguard to open the slides or diving boards. They may appear closed due to no lifeguard at the activity, but once you ask another lifeguard, they will send someone to open it up. There is a ramada for some shade & the splashpad area has some shade. You can bring in outside food & drinks - just no glass containers. Our family loves taking our own camp chairs and spending the day! The facility has bathrooms/changing rooms and is handicap accessible.
