Watermark Country Club in Cascade Township has a wonderful pool facility.

We are not members but being members of the golf course we are allowed

to use the facility several times a year at a small charge.

Yesterday was POOL DAY!!   Our grandson, Jeffy is up from Indianapolis for

his yearly “Grandparents Camp Week” with us. The pool is one of his favorite

places to go.

It was in the eighties and humid—perfect pool weather, even though the

clouds looked menacing.  We had tried on Monday but got rained out before

we could get wet. The pool staff keeps  a sharp eye on the weather and closes

the pool if a storm threatens. Watermark has lunch available poolside and

we had hamburgers and a hotdog to keep our energy up for the big day.

We took a couple of pictures, so you can see what a great place it is.

view of pools

This is a shot of both pools, the adult pool with slide tower in back, and

the kid’s pool in front. There is a putting range behind the storage

building in the background for the kids to use.

kids pool

The kids pool is THE MOST popular area – a small slide, 2 water shooting

animals to ride,and the dumping pails tower in the center make this fun

for big and little children.

lunch area

The pool house has a men’s and women’s locker room with showers,

toilets and changing stations.  An additional restroom is located close

to the pool. Grilled burgers and other lunch favorites are available until

the pool closes at 8 pm.

sand & play structure

The sand box is a draw for big and little children.  A small play structure, a

large play fort with slide, and a swing set are all set in this huge sand box.

Jeffy is on the right heading for the water spigot, he is excavating a water

trench with buckets and shovels.

TW at the driving range

That’s me taking a few swings at the driving range – just over the fence

from the pool.

called RiverBeat.


 These are the 4 dates to put on your calendar:  

   June 26th, July 10, July 24, and  Aug 14. 

June 26th – The Icicles – As heard in Target Commercials

July 10th – New Reformation Band – Classic Dixieland Swing

July 24th – Mustard’s Retreat – David Tamulevich & Micheal Hough

August 14th – Old time Country by 3 Contemporary Gals – Winner of Ed McMahons Star Search


 The Cascade Community Foundation is the sponsor,  along with other

 local contributors that help defray the cost.

So if you are thinking about what to do on a Thursday night
