Phase 4

Each day will be divided into 3 Open Swim sessions A, B, C (see calendar below). Each session will be available for pool pass holders and daily admissions, first come-first served. Deck chairs will be available at social distance. After each swim session the facility will be closed for one half hour for cleaning. If capacity allows, reentry will be accepted.



In order to give as many people as possible the opportunity to enjoy our swimming facilities within Phase 4 guidance from the State of Illinois DCEO for Outdoor Recreation, the following guidelines will be in place and enforced for Open Swim times at Chippewa & Iroquois pools. These guidelines may be updated as deemed necessary by the Des Plaines Park District or other governing agency. All other facility rules apply.

Thank you for helping us make this a safe & fun time for everyone by adhering to all of these guidelines.
