In order to reintroduce my 4 yr old to a pool so that he is semi prepared for his first official swimming lesson (at Dunwoody Baptist), I gave my wife a number of prime shopping hours by herself on Sunday as I treated my three boys to the Bethesda Park Aquatic Center in Gwinnett County. The facilities are fantastic for a wide variety of children's ages. My 10 yr old loved the big slide, the 8 yr old enjoyed the river and whirlpool and my 4 yr old enjoyed the water playground made for little tikes. The indoor leisure play pool is normally open from 3 pm to 8:30 pm Monday through Thursday though they are closed for a few days starting this Thursday the 24th. Weekend hours are earlier opening at 11 on Saturday and 1 on Sunday. Check this website for full dates and times.
