Make a giant ball pool like they have in the McD's playgrounds.

It simply comes down to the maintenance you are willing to afford for upkeep. There are also many different types of inground pools that require different maintenance. Enough so that you would be doing yourself an injustice to rely on anyone's experience to direct you in a decision.

For instance, some pools designs require draining some of the water from the pool when winterizing; fiberglass drop-in designs must be kept full to prevent upheaval. My father in law has gotten it down to where he is able winterize his pool himself, saving a couple hundred a year.

Best invention ever; he cut the knob off of one of those tiny aluminum bats to use as the pool cover installation tool. Slip the handle of the bat through the cover's hoop, set the hollow handle end over the pin, pry up and push the hoop down with your foot. When you remove the bat, the hoop will be hooked to the pin. Easy peasy.

I would build a floor, multi-level if it has varying depths, then a roof on top that can also double as a deck or garden area. Make your secret entrance (that telephone booth on top is an elevator down), have power down in there along with lighting, make it your Man Cave, Movie Theater, Secret Shop, Storage Place, Bomb Shelter, Twinkie Storage, etc.

Covering it with a deck sounds like a good idea... Could be a cool bar/gazeebo/deck

Cover it with glass. That way you keep the pool, lose the maintenance, and gain a room.

Picture a German Jock looking guy trying to dive into a hockey rink, and you basically have it.
