We are lucky this year that Ft. Shafter has built a new pool just for kids. The round part is no more than 18 inches deep and contains sand and is surrounded by a sandy beach. The rectangular part goes from 3Ft. to 4Ft. This is great for the kids and it doesn't really interest the teens so it is not very crowded. I can see we will visit here often this summer. There is also a big park. And the best part is it is free. Now that is a nice, easy, inexpensive summer.
