Round-up of Lake County Park District Pools Offering Family Passes

There is nothing like that moment of sticker-shock at the admissions gate when you’re out for a day of family fun and you hear the big total. “Wait…What? That can’t possibly be right. This is supposed to be a reasonably priced family activity!” Whether it’s a big trip to the zoo or an afternoon visit to the local pool, admission prices for families can be expensive. Fortunately, many of our park district pools offer discounted family passes. This can help to keep the costs reasonable, and allows families to take advantage of these great park district pools for the whole season. Take the time to research the pools in your area. Along with varying fees of a family pass, the different pools offer a wide range of features and amenities; some even have splash pads, water parks, or offer special tot-swim hours! For a family with little ones, you may want to consider paying the higher price for a non-resident family pass in a neighboring town if that pool offers what your family will enjoy most.
