As summer approaches, I thought it would be good to talk about the Monon Center that is so popular in Carmel. The Monon Center is a public facility operated by the Carmel/Clay Board of Parks and Recreation.
The Monon Center Aqua Park opened on the 23rd of May and will be open through Labor Day. This includes a lap pool with six 25-yard lanes, a lazy river (where do I sign up??), two water slides, a kiddie pool and a deep pool with a one-meter diving board.
There is no membership required to visit the Monon Auqa Park. You can buy an annual or monthly pass, but you can also purchase a 10 visit pass or a daily pass for as little as $8.00 a day or if you qualify for youth or senior, only $5.00 a day. The 10 visit pass is $50 or again if you qualify for youth or senior, then only $40.
Parking has been a bit of a problem, so I would recommend parking in the east parking lot that is only accessible from the park entrance off of Rangeline Road/Westfield Blvd.
The Park is located between Rangeline and College and between 111th and 116th street; residents from Lexington Park can walk there as can many other Carmel home owners in the area.
