How young is to young to enter an aquatic facility?

I am currently researching the minimum age allowed to enter aquatic facilities without an adult. We have been allowing children 9 years and older to enter our facility during public swim without adult supervision. I will be advocating that we raise the minimum age requirement in the future and am curious to what you do.What is your minimum age to enter your facility without adult supervision? Do you operate a pool or a waterpark?See More
