This pool has 2 big slides (for kids 48" and over), a small river, a beach entry pool and a water play structure for little kids.
Residents and non-residents can use the pool for a fee.
We went to the small Texas City water park on a weekday afternoon and found lots of shaded seating and plenty of room to play. (Check before you go, because at the end of the summer, hours change to weekends only.)
I had never been here, so I wasn't sure what to expect... but the equipment was very new and nice, the locker rooms were clean, the patrons were nice and all the kids looked to be supervised. One lifeguard was a little moody at the end of the big slides... but it did not seem to be an issue with the whole group.
The pool closed for about 20 minutes due to lightning, but we got back in afterwards.
No outside food is allowed at this Texas City water park but there is a reasonably priced concession stand. Also, there are lockers for a quarter.
Our visit to the Nessler Aquatic Center was like a mini waterpark... but for only $18 total for the family. It's obviously not Schlitterbahn, but we weren't looking for a big waterpark experience!
