Best Public Pool 

Lakewood Park


On the bluffs overlooking Lake Erie, Lakewood Park offers all the essentials of weekend life: baseball fields, basketball and tennis courts, picnic areas and a band shell where the city holds free concerts. The Foster Pool features long-course swimming (it's 50 meters long by 25 yards wide) and offers a shallow area for the kids. (The Madison pool, on Madison, is also public.) Season passes for residents begin at $40; it's $55 for non-residents. Day passes are also dirt-cheap: $4 for residents and $5.50 for non-Lakewooders. Bathing-suit bodies definitely not required: This is Cleveland, after all.
