besides my own tub.
Seriously, does anyone know where is a good swimming place in Tucson where one can go without paying too much and not too many children peeing in the water.

City pools? Hotel pools? YMCA?

I believe some resorts allow visitors by their pools for a fee, but I'm not 100% sure. I happened to read about one of the Marriotts being open to the public on Sundays - don't know if they charge or not.

Don't know about the kids peeing in the pool, but Himmel Park is really nice, and the pool looks nice there (though I haven't been swimming).

Here's a list of public pools:

The Cove in Sierra Vista. It's a bit of a drive, but the best pool in the area.

Back when I was at U of A, we went to Sabino Canyon. Wasted many a Sunday afternoon out there.

The pool at the Clements Center is decent and clean. Its especially great (quieter) when the kids are in school.

The water splash area at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park, 3482 East River Road is awesome and FREE. The Splash Park is available from mid-April until October 31 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

What exactly is a "splash park"? I live very close to Brandi Fenton Park, but I've never actually checked it out...

A splash park is a park that has a splash pad.

A splash pad. It's where water is used as a playset. Its a water playground. Water can squirt out at your feet, or fountains, or pours down or over some structure. I haven't been to the one in Brandi Fenton, but all splash pads are similar. They create a cool wet place where people can play in the water, but not be a drowning danger for those who don't swim.

You get to walk on water.
