Parents who'd rather steer clear of the hoardes at Staten Island's larger Lyons Pool can opt for this medium-size watering hole. Getting there takes a bit more time, but families who arrive by car won't have to schlep their pool gear far from the parking lot. While tots paddle around, the trees around the pool's perimeter provide plenty of shade for watchful parents. Stay tuned for updates on a skate park in Faber Park, where adventurous youngsters will want to work up a sweat before taking a dip.
