The aim of this article is to show different types of design solutions for children swimming pool areas. The research material was developed based on the literature studies and quality research of existing water parks located in Poland. For the purposes of the article a preliminary studies of 31 major facilities were made. Second, three representative examples to study in detail were selected. Next observational studies of user behavior and usage were conducted. At the end the specified methods of evaluation were described and results of research were presented. Acquired knowledge and experience indicate the possibility of efficient use of qualitative research in design practice during programming and design of water recreation facilities. In particular the use of the correct diagnosis of the needs of future users, for example: children, families with children, seniors etc.
