Family Fun Directory of Things To Do with Kids:
Richfield Pool is an outdoor pool located at Veterans Park. For the smaller children, it offers a zero-depth-entry wading pool with splash pad equipment. Diapers are not allowed, so don't forget to grab rubber pants? I don't know what rubber pants are; I assume they mean swimmies or the reusable equivalent. If you are in the diaper stage of life, you may want to call ahead to verify.
For the older kids and adults, there is a 50-meter pool with a wheelchair access ramp. The pool features a double waterslide, a diving board, space to play water volleyball. Swimwear is required.
Outside food is not allowed in the pool area, but there is nearby parking and picnic space. There is also a concession stand with umbrella-covered sit-down tables. Prices of concessions range between $2 and $3.
The season runs mid-June to late August. Admission ranges from $8-$10/pp. Children under one year of age are free.
