I took my 2 young grandsons to the Oasis Splash Pad for the 1st time yesterday and what a treat it was for them. There are different prices for admission: $2.00 per child Michigan City Resident, $4.00 per child Indiana Resident and $6.00 per child for Out of State Residents. The Session times are posted and are 2 hour sessions....
Went with 4 year old granddaughter on a
Tuesday afternoon. Paid the entry fee only to be told that nothing could be taken inside i.e towels, blankets, bags or toys. This was a deal breaker for my granddaughter who loves collecting water into buckets and cups. Added to that there was not a secure location to leave belongings at all....
Having grown up in Michigan City I refuse to let my kids near the lake because of the current. The splashpad is the perfect alternative to this problem. The parents can go in and there are tons of different sprayers. They have shaded seating and a snack bar.
Our 3-year-old grandson had fun here. It is inexpensive and plenty big for younger children. Splash times run in 2 hour increments with a 1/2 hr. of closed time so you need to check the schedule before you just show up. Adults can accompany the children, though they have to pay.
