McMenamin’s Anderson School Pool

Dive, splash, and swim the day away at McMenamin’s Anderson School pool. The North Lagoon Pool is a full-size swimming pool with comfy temperatures of 88-90 degrees. Admission gives you two hours of open swim fun. The pool is open to all ages, but children under 6 years old must have an adult in the water with them. Anyone under age 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian in the pool area.  After a dip in the pool, visit one of the on-site restaurants  or catch a flick on the big screen (check show times to make sure it’s kid-appropriate).
