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:
- Renovation of an existing inaccessible recreation center into a fully accessible 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.
