Mr. Reece and I were trying to find a pool for the summer. We went back to some pools that we used to sneak into while we were in high school (you know the ones at the many apartment complexes around Provo.) Unfortunately they have all gone fancy with code locks and barbed wire. So, we thought we would try out Veterans pool.
This was a colossal mistake. This pool is more like prison, the pool chairs are a hard metal that burn your back (we both still have burns two days later.) Their rule list is a mile long and they interrupt their easy listening radio to read aloud all the rules. They also reminded all the patrons at the pool that if you have diarrhea to please leave the pool. They also have a mandatory clearing of the pool so they can fish out diapers, red vines and goodness knows what else and they encourage you to go to the bathroom and to not forget to wash your hands. Yeah, the experience was pretty much a disaster. The picture you see above is a direct violation of their no photography rule. Right, because this pool is so visually attractive.
So, we decided to take our business elsewhere and join the crowds at Seven Peaks. A vast improvement even with the Radio Disney that you are forced to listen to and the lack of space in the wave pool.
