leisure pool


Explanation:
Spaßbad leisure pool. It would seem to me that the reference is to a swimming pool that is just for relaxing and having fun, rather than for sport swimming for instance.

agree  Mary Worby: A waterpark would have slides, wave machines, etc. Don't think 'fun baths' works! If anything, maybe 'fun pools'

Waterpark


Explanation:
I would say that this term could refer to a so-called water park that has slides and water activities.
It's not just a "Schwimmbad" but a Spassbad - where people have fun.
