unpleasant summer dayI second the feedback below about rude staff yelling kids, adults not being allowed to carry kids, etc. Overall, awful and very unpleasant place.
HATE ITStaff is rude and keep 'yelling' at little ones not to run. Kids can't take any sort of toys, Adults can't carry children, STAFF will yell at children in case they get too close to the fountain.. the pool is only 1feet deep. Not so much fun for toddlers (1 year +) I had a really awful experience
WonderfulWe just happened upon this as we were strolling around the Common with the kids. Had heard about it - but had no idea it would be so much fun! There is, of course, the actual wading pool and fountain - huge! So there is plenty of room to romp around - and perfect for kids. Parents can even bring the camera in there to catch some fun water action. There is also a terrific playground for bigger kids right there, as well as a super playground for the younger set right next door - complete with spray fountains that bubble up from the ground. Next time, we will bring a picnic, a blanket and some towels and make a day of it. Lots and lots of fun.
