The Fort Myers Beach Pool Complex includes two shower buildings; a shallow
family-fun pool with a playground structure in the middle; and a six-lane,
25-yard pool for general swimming and laps. The lap pool also has an 18-foot
high, figure-eight slide.
The two-story tube slide at the Fort Myers Beach Community pool is
a big hit with kids and adults. This is a
place where children (and intrepid adults) can careen down slides, climb through
tunnels and squirt gallons of water at each other. There, tiny tykes can zip
down a 6-foot orange slide into knee-deep water. They can turn knobs, wheels and
levers to squirt water at each other. There's a tunnel to crawl through and
squirting steps to climb. Since the pool goes from less than a foot to 1 foot, 6
inches, even infants can splash and play, while toddlers, well, toddle around in
the water. School-age children are not allowed in the little pool unless they
are with a younger sibling. That keeps the area safer for little squirts.
kids certainly aren't left out of the fun. For those more than 48 inches tall,
there's a two-story tube slide that twists and turns and sends youngsters flying
out the bottom in a gush of water
