Valley View Aquatic Center is a popular pool, with a lazy river, water slides, competitive pool, and kid’s pool. The kid’s pool has a fun playground structure in the water, however I personally found it difficult to keep an eye on both of my two young kids with the way the equipment was arranged and prefer Clive Aquatic Center for little people.
