We are new to the area, living in Hobart. Can anyone tell me of any nice public pools, that are good for toddlers as well as older kids? I know Hobart has a pool, but it does not look so nice. Any help?

THANKS

Yeah, I know about Deep River and the place in Chesterton. Guess I am looking for cheaper pools.

There are admissions to the beaches .. plus with toddlers?? I remember taking my kids to Washington Park beach and them getting slobberknockered ... and they were 5-6 ... my 2 year old wouldn't even go near the waters.

It doesn't seem like there are very many public pools .. probably because of the Lake and many of the neighborhoods maintain pools for their residents. The Valpo Y has a pool and there is a public pool down in Kouts ...

The new Y in Valpo is $7 a person now if you're not a member.

And just curious, were your kids run over by other kids or were the waters too rough? "Slobberknockered" is such a subjective term
