Best Public Pool

Beachwood Family Aquatic Center

The sun’s out, the temps are tipping toward the triple digits, and you can’t stand to be in your apartment one more minute. Where to? A pool, of course. But which one? Make the drive out to Beachwood’s outdoor pool and aquatics center. Trust us, and trust those who have piled the votes for this spot as high as the highest diving board. Residents can snag an individual season pass for just $50; non-residents can dip in for a day for just $10. They got slides, they got areas for the kiddos, they got comfortable lounge chairs, and they got a big, glorious pool in which to escape the rays.
