COVID-19 Safety Protocol

Plans for summer 2021 are well underway! Additional safety protocols and processes will be in place to ensure safe access during the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples of these processes and guidelines currently anticipated include:

  • Timeslot reservation system for pass holders (no charge), residents without a pass (visit fee), and guests of pass holders and residents (visit fee) due to lower facility capacity limits
    • Timeslots will be available for reservations seven days in advance of the anticipated visit date
    • Timeslots will be two to three hours in length (schedule will be posted soon)
    • Reservations will be made online through RecTrac, the Parks and Recreation Department’s registration system
  • 30-60 minute gaps between timeslots to allow for full facility cleaning between groups
  • Temperature and/or wellness checks at the gate
  • Mask requirements in certain areas of the facility (not required while swimming, traveling between a deck chair and the pool, or while sitting and eating in the concession area)
  • Shifts in typical program (swim lessons, swim team, fitness classes) times to ensure time for cleaning between activities and timeslots
  • Limited ability for swim team, swim lesson, or event spectators to be in the facility due to capacity limits

The upcoming summer at the aquatic center will be a unique experience and we will work to ensure a smooth transition through ongoing updates and communication through our website and emails to pass holders. The Parks & Recreation team is striving to ensure recreational swim time is accessible to community members, within safety guidelines and while taking into consideration the possibility of our region moving into more strict or loosened guidelines at any time during the season. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we navigate this summer season together.


The Proesel Park Family Aquatic Center is a membership-only facility. Village residents and guests of members/residents may pay a walk-in daily fee to enjoy the facility. Residents are welcome to register for season passes in-person and online.

Swim safely this summer! Swimming is an important life and safety skill. The Lincolnwood Swim Academy team is committed to teaching this important skill in an enjoyable environment, with safety and positive reinforcement at the core of our program.

Our program is rooted in American Red Cross swimming philosophies. Each student’s skills are assessed at the beginning of the season, and children are placed in a level with success and quick progression in mind.

During class, students build upon skills that are fundamental to developing a lifelong love of swimming. Upon completion of each session, students are evaluated and receive an achievement card showing their progress.

This program features:

  • New and improved level structure
  • Simplified registration and level selection process
  • Pre-lesson swim assessments


No matter what your age, you’ll have fun racing down the water slide, jumping off the diving boards or just relaxing in the sun! Lincolnwood Parks and Recreation provides two options to host your party. You bring the cake and we’ll provide the fun! For party reservations and availability, please contact the Parks and Recreation office at 847-677-9740.

Several criteria are taken into account when determining whether the aquatic center can open for public swimming. When the weather changes, we do our best to stay on top of the forecast and maximize the amount of open pool time. Depending on what time inclement weather takes place and the forecasted weather conditions, staff will reevaluate the closure and attempt to reopen for the next timeslot.

Weather related closures will be communicated through the Aquatic Center phone’s automated message (847-673-6870) or the Aquatic Center’s flag system. In questionable weather, a flag is raised in front of the pool:

ORANGE FLAG The facility is currently open, but may close due to poor weather or low attendance.
RED FLAG The facility is closed.

The following conditions will result in an Aquatic Center closure:

Inclement Weather The facility is currently open, but may close due to poor weather or low attendance.
Low Attendance When there are fewer than 25 patrons over a 60-minute time frame.
Low Temperature When the temperature is 65 degrees or lower.
Safety Hazard Any condition that creates an unsafe swimming environment.
Swim Meets The Main pool will close early (at 3:00 pm) for swim meets on dates TBD.
Post-Season Hours Post-season hours take effect at the end of the summer when many of our lifeguards return to school.


The Village hires over 130 local teens and adults to operate the facility each summer (mid-May through early-September). Hiring begins in December for a variety of seasonal positions, including lifeguards, swim lesson instructors, aquatic fitness instructors, front desk attendants, concession stand attendants, maintenance and janitorial staff, facility managers, and more.
