Outdoor pools now open at 49 Chicago parks
CHICAGO — Just in time for the steamy weekend, the Chicago Park District’s outdoor pools and water playgrounds are open for business.
The 49 outdoor pools are available for open swims, family swims, lap swim sessions and other classes. Five pools even have water slides. Free swim lessons are available for kids age six through 17 with a special coupon that’s available on their website.
And the waters are now flowing at over 28 water playgrounds across the city as well. Featuring swings, fountains, and other playground elements, they’re a great pool alternative, and running around them is encouraged.
The outdoor pools and water playgrounds will stay open through Labor Day.
