This is a swimming pool. It is deigned and maintained as a lap pool. Just like a house can occasionally have a party - it is not a an event venue, it is a house. 

They have a couple plastic toys to help very small kids feel comfortable in the water so they learn to swim. It is a method of teaching swimming. 

I learned to swim in a similar place. 

La Mesa Swimming Pool

The blurry place (to me) is where a single facility offers many different pools. 

Many "public pools" in Japan are officially named a pool, but also offer water park amenities. 

This massive "park" has several sports facilities, recreation centers, a lake, rose garden, and this pool complex. 

-a massive indoor event pool with spectator seating (for swimming /water polo) 

- outdoor lap pool

- 3 outdoor "water park" pools with slides

- a dedicated diving pool. 

Deciding on what to tag each pool is kind of easy. Deciding on what to tag the entire landuse for the venue is harder. Officially it is a "pool" complex, though it has water park attractions.
