Santa Rita Park
401 E. 22nd Street, Parks & Rec
Yeah, everyone's crazy about the Edith Ball pool at Reid Park--we are, too, especially because it's covered, and some of us have pigment-challenged babies. But the kiddie pool at Santa Rita Park is so, so sweet. It's big, shallow and has its own lifeguard. And there's rarely anyone there, so if your kid wants to splash around yelling, "Elk poop! Elk poop!" all afternoon long, it's not a problem. We only wish the pool could be open year-round, rather than seasonally, but them's the breaks in the Old Pueblo.
