Munster Parks_Summer2011_by SteveCardwellYou don’t need to stay cooped up indoors this week just because of the heat wave. The Munster Indiana Parks and Recreation Department has one of the most popular attractions around–the Community Pool on 8337 Calumet Avenue.

You can purchase pool passes by the day and for the season. And the pool is open all day and into the twilight hours, 8pm weekdays and 6pm on weekends.  The schedule varies sometimes to accommodate private parties and special events. The Munster Park District also has swimming lessons for all age and skill levels available. For the latest information call their “Hot” line at (219) 836-6933.

You can find the printed 2011 Recreation Guide at various locations around Munster, Indiana. Or you can download it from the Town of Munster website. The guide is full of ideas, classes, tours, and cultural activities for all ages. Here are some highlights:

  • Preschool programs for kids 5 and under
  • Art & music youth programs, summer camps, sports camps for soccer, volleyball, basketball, golf, tennis, as well as private and group lessons in these sports for more serious competitors.
  • Fitness and wellness programs including Tai Chi and yoga.
  • The Munster Farmer’s Market, every Sunday AM
  • Continuing Education classes to learn about new vocations and to improve skills.
  • Leisure time activities for adults, classes, card games, cooking classes, shows and social events
  • And the Park District has made arrangements with local tour and vacation providers for a wide assortment of bus tours to destinations across the Midwest, such as: Chicago, Saugatuck, Mackinac, Shipshewana, just to name a few. Other tour operators have rail and air packages to further destinations.

So with all these activities to choose from, you won’t need to travel very far from Munster Indiana to keep your brain stimulated during the lazy days of summer. Perhaps you are looking for a community as “cool” as Munster to search for your next home?  If so, see me for local expert recommendations. And if you are simply working on your tan as the first item on your To-Do list, just grab a towel and head for the Pool.

  1. When I lived in Highland Indiana, the Munster Indiana Pool was the place to be during the hot days of summer especially when you did not want to adventure out to the Indiana Dunes. Make sure to get their early as all the good spots around the swimming pool get snatched up fast.
