    What does your pool paradise look like?

    I have been a long time member and owned a Intex inflatable ring type pool for a few years. I have since move houses and now have an inground pool. Over this spring my wife an I have done a lot to spruce it up. I have to take some photos this weekend but will post some teasers now.

    What does your pool paradise look like? I would love to see tuns of photos of other members pools and pool side decorating in hopes to get some ideas for mine. I'm sure others would love to see as well.

    To give some context to the photos Some are from the first opening of the pool this spring, the others are the installation of the safety fence and a few of articles around the pool currently. I will post more last this weekend.

    WOW very cool, I love the boys shorts, I'm guessing this photo was taken on the 4th lol. The basketball net looks awesome! We have a very similar shaped pool. That's interesting because so many people say how unique our pools shape is.

    They're aren't too many triangle shaped pools out there! I thought your pool's shape looked similar to ours. We get the same type of comments about how unique it looks. Our yard is a triangle so we had to work with what we had

    edit: and yes, you were correct, it was the 4th of July!

    Nice job getting it open and ready for fun!

    Both of those pools show how it can be done when you think outside the box. What wonderful areas they are!

    Wow... these are terrific! I love seeing photos of people's layout and design. We just had the majority of our pool remodeled last year and couldn't be happier with how it turned out:
