The Indoor Water Park in Warren is located in the Community Center building on Arden. (west of Mound, between 13 and 14 mile). The building houses the pool, a fitness center, a gymnasium, an auditorium and so much more.
About our visit:
The site offers a great locker room with plenty of lockers, bathroom facilities, showers, electrical outlets (for dryers and curling irons) and electrical hand dryers. The locker room was very clean and well maintained. When you visit, don’t forget to bring your own lock, towels and shampoos/soaps. If you have a child in diapers, swim diapers and plastic covers are required.
The pool house contains a pool which is partially sectioned off for lap swimming, a children’s splash play area, a lazy river, a hot tub for adults and several slides. In addition to the water attractions there was a party room.
We spent most of our time at the large play structure where there were four sets of slides and lots of opportunities for the children to get wet. There was a big bucket that fills and spills. It scared Rosa and Carlyn every time it emptied. They spent most of their time playing in the water near the structure. Rosa finally got brave and went down one of the slides and loved it.
I liked that there were sections that were zero depth entry, but I didn’t like that for a majority of the area you had to step up to get out.
The pool also had a rule that every child under the age of six must have an adult in the water with them, actively supervising them. I would have been right next to Carlyn the whole time anyway, but I can see how that might be annoying with Rosa, since she is a competent swimmer.
We went in the lazy river next. Rosa LOVED this. She could touch the bottom and swim around. Carlyn was just okay with it.
Overall, it was a great time. The employees and life guards were all very friendly and helpful. The water was warm, but in the splash area, it could have been just a bit warmer. If we lived in Warren I would be very temped to get a membership.
