Como Pool was completely renovated in 2012. A lap pool and zero-depth entry remain, but many fun features have been added including a zip line, climbing wall, lazy tubing river and a shallow splash pool with small slides and a water play area. Como Pool does have a concessions stand for a snack during swim breaks. Because it is an outdoor pool, it is open from early June through Labor Day.
