Very easy to access. You'll have to walk through the mortuary and towards the maintenance shed in the back. The entrance is on the left side. You can jump into this pool but I have a bad knee now and can't do that kind of stuff anymore. I did swim in it though. It's deep enough in the center.
Lots of mosquitoes.

A bit overgrown, a few rocks to climb over and quite a few indications that homeless live here. but they weren't around and it was a very short peaceful hike, even though you can hear (and eventually see) cars from the Pali Highway.

bring bug repellent!mosquitos love it here.

Nice leisure walk once your on the correct trail.

Go down the LEFT side of the maintenance shed for an easier stroll. Super easy for my 7 year old. The right side is not maintained and does require appropriate footwear. It does make it more interesting but just an FYI.

Be sure to use a quality mosquito repellent. We were devoured.
