The Des Peres outdoor pool is a very nice facility. The family pool is great, with slides for preschoolers - kids need to be able to go up the stairs and sit down on the slide by themselves. Parents can stand at the bottom of the slide to catch their kids.

The splash pad area is wonderful for kids and has a ton of sprayers and moveable animals that spray water.  My daughter loved standing under the buckets waiting for them to dump water on her head.







The 2 big slides are for kids 48" and up and they are fun! The blue slide is slow and twisty and the yellow speed slide sends you flying straight down into the water at a very fast speed. It was intense and so fun!
