Stay Cool at the Pool all summer long with the Oswegoland Park District!
With the State in the Bridge Phase of the Restore Illinois Plan, Aquatics Staff has been able to reevaluate pool operations and expand our offerings for this summer.
The Bridge Phase allows for increased capacity at the Civic Center Aquatic Park, providing us the opportunity to sell Season Pool Passes and remove the need for advanced reservations during specific time blocks.
As in a regular season, admission to the Aquatic Park is first-come, first-served. We will begin the season with a capacity of 500 guests at any one time. Seating zones for up to 100 people will be designated throughout the facility. Picnic tables outside the pool area and readmission will be available for guests wishing to eat during their visit. Guests will be required to follow current face-covering guidelines.
The Pool Manager may close the pool during swimming hours under the following circumstances:
- An electrical storm
- Severe weather conditions
- Air Temperature is below 70 degrees or water temperature is below 65 degrees
- Attendance drops below 10 guests
If lightning is spotted or inclement weather occurs, the pool will be cleared but will remain open 30 minutes to determine if the weather will improve. If additional lightning sightings occur, we must wait 30 minutes from the last sighting before opening again. A rain check will be offered to paying customers if the pool remains closed after 30 minutes.
The Park District will share pool closings through rainoutline.com. You can view the status online, sign up for text and/or email alerts, or download the mobile app.
Civic Center Aquatic Park and Winrock Pool are available after hours for private rentals. To book a private pool rental call Aquatics at 630.554.4467.
