The Chesterfield Family Aquatic Center is a great facility for the entire family. My toddler loved the splash playground and could even go down the smaller of the 2 slides on it. She also got a kick out of sitting on my lap while floating around the lazy river. Older children will love the slides and diving boards. Another nice feature of this facility is that the lockers require a quarter to lock them, but you get the quarter back when you open it back up. The facility is half price for both residents and non-residents after 5 pm, so if you only plan on swimming for an hour or two, show up after 5 and you don't have to pay as much, it's also less crowded after 5.

Cons to this facility include the layout of the pools - you have to walk halfway around the lazy river to grab a tube and then walk back around to the entrance to the lazy river (although you can often find an empty tube left next to the entrance to the lazy river as well). Also, the large slides are not close to the rest of the pools so in order to watch someone going down the slides you have to walk to the far end of the park. My toddler was terrified when the large bucket would empty over the splash playground.
