The Chastain [Park] pool [in Buckhead] is the place that has everything you need. You just want to jump right in when you see the little waves and the big splashes. There are so many different options, like basketball, swimming, hanging out in the snack shop, swim team and playing wall ball. You can’t go wrong! It’s the most exciting place to spend your summer.

A pool is no fun without a diving board. Am I right? Chastain has the most bouncy diving board! As you step onto it you experience a rough, bumpy feeling, so it is impossible to slip. When you run and get that huge bounce and hit the water, it is such a great feeling. You could be at the diving board all day long and do all sorts of tricks!

What happens when you get hungry? Or get bored of swimming, and baseball just isn’t your thing? You could go to the concession stand and buy an ice cream. Or you can even work there. My personal favorite thing is to work there. I love to scrape the snow off the side of the ice cream cooler. When you work there you get something for free every 30 minutes! It smells like candy and chocolate ice cream. There is a huge fan in the snack shack so when you get hot, that feels really good. It is such a great feeling when you hear the change bouncing in the tip jar! You could also do wall ball. That’s pretty fun but normally only boys play that.

If you decide you want to swim laps you can go to the lap pool, or if you want to swim at the deep end by the diving board, that’s a separate pool as well. Lastly, there is another pool that goes to 5 feet. There are so many choices. With all those options you would be busy all day! Also, the basketball court is freshly painted blue and yellow, they have so many basketballs there. There is a swim team and it is so much fun! Swim team has fun Fridays where we do all sorts of activities such as pool games, swimming across the pool with shaving cream on your head and more. You also get popsicles after meets and for the next practice. So, basically there is the pool.

In conclusion, the Chastain pool is such a memorable and exciting place to be. When you feel the sun shining on you that is how you know it is summer. What better place to be in the summer than the Chastain pool?
