For Westsiders who think of Sam Dimas' Raging Waters as "Road-Raging Waters," Stoner Park Pool has the water slide for you. Nestled in the northwest quadrant of the 10 and 405 crossing, it's no run-of-the-mill, chutes-and-ladders–style ride. A real spiral with three solid curves and a satisfying splash at the bottom, the slide is open from 1 to 5 p.m. weekdays and 2:30 to 5 p.m. on weekends (the pool is open longer). And with an entrance fee that's effectively a 90 percent discount over brand-name water parks, it won't have you Hurricane Harbor–ing regrets. Slide riders must be at least 7 years old, 48 inches tall and wearing a bathing suit. You're not required to like fun, but it's not a bad idea, since you'll probably have some. (Note: Open only during summer.) 1835 Stoner Ave., West L.A., 90025. laparks.org/dos/aquatic/facility/StonerParkPool.htm. —Eve Weston
