Located next to Basha High School, Mesquite Grove’s amenities offer a multitude of ways for families to enjoy some aquatic recreation or simply cool off. Children, whose admission price is just $1, can frolic in the play structure portion that boasts two water slides, a lazy river, a splash pad and an enormous tumble bucket that deluges anyone below with a cascade of water. The pool area features year-round lap swimming, but the facility is closed to the public during Basha swimming meets, so check the pool’s operational hours online before leaving the house with swimsuit in hand.
