Morningside Pool, at Morningside Park in Clearwater, has one of the top children's water playgrounds and a great pool for teens and adults. The main pool has two lanes open to lap swim with two diving boards and one giant blue slide to appease adventure-seekers. Then, in the back, there is a fenced-off area that contains an activity training pool with water at no more than 3 feet deep and a play area with an animal theme. Kids can ride a whale and turtle, slide down a frog's tongue and be sprayed by a large mushroom.
Pools are open June to August. The activity pool is open 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday noon to 5 p.m. The main pool is open noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday, Friday, 10 a.m to 5 p.m. and Saturday noon to 5 p.m.
