Recreation Park Pool and Bathhouse

Recreation Park Future Aquatic Amenities & Bathhouse


The Arlington Heights Park District led a planning initiative for Recreation Park facility improvements (future aquatic amenities and bathhouse) and has submitted an application for funding assistance through an Illinois Department of Natural Resources Park and Recreational Facility Construction Act (PARC) Grant

The improvements will include:

  • Improved accessibility into a bathhouse (its intended purpose), while maintaining the original façade of a well-loved WPA building, initially constructed in 1937
  • Complete removal of the existing 50-Meter Swimming pool to be replaced with a new 50-Meter Swimming pool
  • Updated children’s aquatic area
  • Additional green space accessible to pool users

A community open house meeting was held at the site on June 7, 2023 and the  proposed concepts were reviewed. The community was invited to ask questions and provide feedback on the plans.
