No, once you have reserved or purchased your time slot it is your time. You are welcome to come whenever you would like during the time slot. Your spot will never be given away unless you have canceled the reservation. Please view the cancellation and refund policies included in FAQ 8.
Masks are not required while in the water.
Masks will be required in the following locations and when six-foot physical distancing cannot be achieved:
Vaccinated guests will be required to wear masks in all required areas. Per the Center for Disease Control (CDC) all vaccinated individuals should continue to use precautions when in public.
Visitors will check in at the Aquatic Center guest services desk when they arrive. Masks are required when approaching and entering the Aquatic Center. All staff and incoming visitors will have their temperature checked and will complete a pre-entry health screening questionnaire (link to questions coming soon). On busier days, there may be separate lines for pre-registered visitors and visitors who plan to reserve or purchase a time slot at the door.
Please bring your season pass with you when you come to the Aquatic Center. Staff will have a list of registered visitors per time slots. If you are a guest and do not have a season pass, please plan to bring a form of ID to indicate if you are a Lincolnwood resident. If a form of ID is not available, the non-resident guest time slot visit fee will be charged.
Snack and beverages (other than water) may be packed in a lunch-sized, soft-sided cooler and are allowed in the concession area only. Bulk, commercially packaged, or delivered foods are not allowed in the Aquatic Center. They may be consumed outside of the Aquatic Center, at picnic tables located near the Aquatic Center in Proesel Park.
The Aquatic Center will remain open during rain if it is safe to do so. The Aquatic Center needs to be closed due to inclement weather in the first half of the time slot, all individuals that paid the time slot visit fee will receive a full refund to their household account. The household credit can be used for another time slot purchase or program registration in the future. If the Aquatic Center is closed in the second half of the reserved time slot, refunds will not be provided.

Several options where considered when planning for the 2021 summer season. Overall policy decisions such as the sale of resident and non-resident season passes, as well as potential benefits and impacts of various options were thoroughly assessed over the past several months by the Parks and Recreation Department, the Parks and Recreation Board, and the Village Board. A determination on how to proceed was made with great consideration for the average number of community members that typically visit the pool on a daily basis compared to the availability of time slots, common practices and guidelines during the pandemic, and the impact of various pass type sales on the overall facility operation.
The Parks and Recreation Department greatly appreciates the continued support of residents as these plans have been developed. We are also grateful to the many families who consider our parks, camps, and aquatic center an extension of their community during the summer months. Our team is excited to serve the community through the provision of recreational swim opportunities this summer.
Season pass and time slot visit fees directly support the operation of the Aquatic Center. They help to maintain a safe, supervised, clean, and welcoming aquatic environment. The combination of pandemic-related safety/cleaning processes, the way in which the facility is designed, and the supplies needed to ensure well-maintained water does not allow for a significant decrease in staffing or supply expenses associated with operating the Aquatic Center.
