Summit Waves

120 Southwest Blue Parkway, Lee's Summit | 913-969-1545

A trip to the local swimming pool is often a better idea in theory than in practice. Grimy locker rooms, a dearth of lounge chairs, amorous teens and nonresident fees can taint the experience, making a day spent in the backyard with a lawn chair and a hose seem more appealing. Fortunately, Summit Waves, a city-owned aquatic center in Lee's Summit, has every base covered for an enjoyable sun- and chlorine-filled afternoon. This supersized, three-year-old facility is beautifully landscaped, clean as a whistle and staffed by courteous professionals. Families can use private locker rooms with a changing table and showers; sunbathers can find several areas in which to lounge; and those in need of escape can take an inner-tube trip on the 904-foot lazy river. Forget your towel or sunscreen? Those items and other pool necessities can be purchased inside. Hungry? Find healthy selections, like salads and grilled-salmon sandwiches, at the concession stand. Visiting Summit Waves is like vacationing at a water resort without leaving Jackson County.
