Shanklin Pool

Shanklin Pool is currently closed for the season. Stay tuned for an opening date for Summer 2018!

All patrons visiting Shanklin Pool are required to purchase a pool photo ID for $2/resident or $3/non-resident. This ID is valid for three years. With the photo ID, patrons will pay daily or twilight admission fees. Season pass purchase includes photo ID.

Please see the "Shanklin Pool Rules" listed below to get answers to frequently asked questions. For additional information, you may contact the pool at (574) 533-7616.

 


Open Public Swim Hours:

Monday - Friday: (Daily Hours) 12 noon – 4 pm; (Twilight Hours)  6 - 8 pm
Saturday & Sundays: 12 noon - 7 pm


Resident and Non-Resident Fees:
Goshen City residents, through city property taxes, contribute substantially to support facilities and programs offered by the Goshen Parks and Recreation Department.  Non-residents are commonly asked to pay an additional amount so they contribute equally with those City residents.  We appreciate non-resident’s understanding in this situation regarding our fee structure.  A City resident is anyone who lives within the City limits of Goshen.
