Pool Closing Information

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 at 4:00 pm. Refunds are not issued for facility closures.

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 30-minute time frame.
Low Temperature When the temperature is 68 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 June 19, July 3 & July 17.
Post-Season Hours Post-season hours take effect at the end of the summer when many of our lifeguards return to school.
