We went to Parakai for a birthday party, it was a super busy day and it felt very over crowded in the main outside pool. The pool at the bottom of the slides, looked and felt dirty and murky. The lifeguards were all quite young adults, and I'm not sure how much authority they had over patrons who weren't abiding by the rules on the slides.
You are allowed to jump in and do bombs etc in the main pool, which is fun, but it felt dangerous as there were so many people in the pool, and the adults seemed to be the worse when it came to being considerate.
Unfortunately my young daughter had the horrible experience of witnessing a couple displaying some pretty inappropriate behaviour in the main pool.
The kids did have fun, and enjoyed the water for hours, but it won't come up on our list of things to do in the near future.
