July 2012

On another scorching hot day last week, the kids and I hit the Bowview Outdoor Swimming Pool to cool off. When you have two little water babies there is nothing better to do on a hot day than go for a swim outdoors.

The Bowview Pool has two nice-sized swimming pools: a huge main pool complete with a large slide for the big kids and a kiddie slide for the younger ones and a good-size shallow pool for babies and toddlers. My two year loved the little blue slide in the main pool. She spent most of the time waiting her turn in line for that millisecond thrill.

One of the features at this pool is the mushroom sprayer. Kids love them!


The Bowview Pool is nice and big which is great on a busy day. There were a lot of kids splashing around when we were there and it did not feel too crowded.


There is a ton of seating at the Bowview Outdoor Pool. Several picnic tables with bright red umbrellas are located on the north end of the pool if you bring snacks or want to buy a treat from the concession stand.


My kids loved vegging out on the plastic Adirondack style chairs scattered around the pool


We saw a lot of people dragging in their floaty pool toys but the Bowview Outdoor Pool provides some fun floatation toys as well as buckets of pool toys for the younger kids to play with (or to use as a torture device…you know, whatever floats your boat).
