What makes a deck a pool deck? The proximity of the pool. Some decks are at the seaside, others beside a river, lake.
The areas are not so much for walking, as for sitting.
So I would think not pedestrian, but more leisure? leisure=deck ?

However people have been using pedestrian for some time e.g.

A form of fountain with foot access... possibly a combination of fountain and pedestrian/foot?

A pitch is for playing sport, not relaxation.
