Pools

The Chicago Park District has 26 indoor pools and 51 outdoor pools. Additionally, we manage the staff and run programming at 36 Chicago Public School pools in partnership with After School Matters, 18 of which offer community programming. Indoor pools are open year-round, with the exception of some school pools which have seasonal variations to their schedule. The outdoor pool season typically runs from mid-June through Labor Day.

Pool hours of operation vary by location. Hours are listed on individual pool schedules (see below).

Many of our pools have accessibility features such as ADA stairs, pool lifts and zero depth entry. At a few locations with pool lifts, direct wheelchair access to the pool area may still be limited.

Come out and SWIM and enjoy open swims, family swims and lap swims. Hours for these can be found on the individual pool schedules (below). Some pools offer instructional classes such as aquatic exercise and learn to swim. The Chicago Park District also offers swim team, swim club, water polo club and junior lifeguard programs for youth and teens. For further information on these programs, including descriptions, click here: Aquatics Program Descriptions. To view the aquatic programs available for the current program session (dates, times, etc.), click here: Aquatic Programs - Current Program Session Information.
