What is the future of Iroquois Pool?

Iroquois Pool will be open in 2019, and we plan to keep it open in 2020. While Iroquois is more than 50 years old, and is well past the natural life of a pool built in that era, our outstanding mechanical wizards have kept it operating safely and economically. Will that always be possible? No. Outdoor pools don’t last forever, and maintaining them eventually becomes impractical. Upgrading, or demolishing and rebuilding a pool on this site is not possible for some simple reasons: there is not enough land to upgrade or build within the current safety and land management codes. We could not meet the mechanical, ADA, and storm water detention requirements. We’re researching options for building some type of water activity area on the south end of Des Plaines, and expect to be gathering community input in 2019-2020.
