The pool complex with its slides and other amazing aquatic-amusement tools make this place special, but when you factor in the gigantic Ballantrae bunnies and splash pad across the road, we have to think that's what put the Dublin Community Pool South over the top in the voting. It's an irresistible combination.

Now, non-Dublin residents, be forewarned if you're looking to do a little pool hopping this summer: only 500 non-Dublin residents will be eligible to buy season passes, and if you're looking to get a day pass (up to $8 but kids 2 and under are admitted free), you'll need to be accompanied by a Dublin resident.
