Themed Kiddie Pools Found in The Woodlands
Parents find delight in introducing their children to the kiddie pool. With its shallow water, plastic pails and inflatable toys, the kiddie pool is a haven of fun, discovery and social interaction for our children. Spending time in the kiddie pool to familiarize a toddler to the water could be the first step in cultivating or training a life-long swimmer.
One of the most fun, exciting, and memorable aspects of The Woodlands pools would have to be their themed slides in the kiddie pool. With the many themed kiddie pools found in the Woodlands, chances are your kids won’t remember the name of the pool they’d like to go to, but if they enjoyed sliding down a whale’s tongue more than the back of a dragon, for sure, they’ll tell you.
Get ready for some water fun as we show some of the themed slides of kiddie pools found in The Woodlands.
Alden Bridge Park – The Butterfly Pool
Located alongside Alden Bridge Park with a beautiful view of the iconic Alden Bridge; the pool and park are on the shore of the large fishing pond which is both forested nearly all the way around and has a small island as well. A large portion of Alden Bridge Park, including the tennis court area, is on the opposite shore of the pond from the pool. The pool features both the three-flume slide for the bigger kids and a butterfly-themed slide for the tots.
