The Arlington Heights Park District enriches the community by providing quality recreation, parks, facilities and fun. Aquatic programs and facilities provide you with an opportunity to foster a healthy lifestyle, learn new skills and enjoy quality family time together. We have five outdoor pools located at Camelot, Frontier, Heritage, Pioneer and Recreation parks and one year-round indoor swimming facility located at Olympic Indoor Swim Center.
Ultimately our efforts benefit the community of 78,000. Our community is known as a swimming town. That is evident by the overwhelming support we receive through program registrations and open swim attendance. In Arlington Heights swimming is lifelong.
POOL CLOSING POLICY
The following conditions may warrant closings of the outdoor pools:
Inclement weather – pools will close immediately if lightning is seen, tornado warnings are posted, or thunder is heard. Patrons will be asked to take shelter in the bathhouse. The pools will reopen if a 15-minute period passes without further incidence. Staff will always proceed with caution for participant and staff safety.
Air temperature below 67 degrees, as recorded at O’Hare.
Low attendance – portions of the pool or the entire pool may be closed.
Fecal accidents – staff will follow rules established by the State of Illinois when determining how long the pool needs to be closed after a fecal or vomit accident.
Olympic Indoor Swim Center is open rain or shine for your swimming enjoyment. Olympic will be closed if severe weather is imminent.
