Splash & Play

(Ages 6 months - 6 years) Infants, toddlers, and young children may enjoy the Children’s Pool before it opens to the general public. Parents and caregivers are expected to directly supervise children in their care. Please note: Children attending Splash & Play must be season passholders in order to participate. Adult season passholders may bring children who are passholders, or may purchase a Splash & Play punch card to bring children who are not passholders as their guests. Each non-passholder child must be accounted for on a punch card for each day of attendance. (There is no punch for the accompanying passholder adult). Admission prices can be found here.

So to get into this pool for a non resident (anyone who does not live or work in Clayton) you'd have to buy a season pass and for a family that is $479. Pretty steep. HOWEVER....they have a punch card system that is pretty cool. Here's how it works:

 Non-residents may purchase a 10-visit punch card to attend certain programs. Cards are program-specific, and they allow holders to attend the program ten times, so they can schedule around work, weather, vacations, etc. Season passholders can even use them to bring guests to their favorite programs! There is no limit to the number of punch cards a person can purchase in a season, and all cards expire on the last day of the program. Punch cards are on sale at The Center of Clayton and Shaw Park Aquatic Center during normal hours of operation. Fees are as follows:

Splash & Play Resident: $60, Non-Resident: $80




 That dolphin is a slide and has water jets spraying out of it. So fun!
