Des Plaines Park District

Chippewa & Iroquois Pools

Quick look at ALL pool hours and fees.

The Des Plaines Park District Lifeguards won the J. Ellis Gold International Aquatic Safety Award for their outstanding work in 2015.  The award.

We offer year-round aquatics programs featuring swimming lessons for all ages, aqua exercise, and lifeguard training programs. We have three outdoor pools in Des Plaines, and the use of an indoor pool through a cooperative agreement with the Rosemont Park District.

During the summer pool season, we operate two neighborhood pools, Chippewa and Iroquois, and the popular Mystic Waters Family Aquatic Center.

With a wide variety of pool pass options, Des Plaines residents and swimmers from all around the area have virtually limitless aquatic adventure opportunities at the park district!
