Des Plaines Park District

Mystic Waters Hours and Fees


For your safety and ours, Mystic Waters will be closed for the 2020 season. 

The Park District spends eight weeks preparing for the opening of Mystic Waters. Our staff do a wonderful job pressure testing water supply and drainage lines to ensure there are no cracks or leaks, cleaning and painting areas of the pools & lazy river, fixing issues with the pool deck or waterslides, hiring & training 120 staff, landscaping of the facility, ordering concession supplies, and many other preseason work that is needed to open a massive facility.

We hope the Des Plaines Park District is allowed to open our other 2 outdoor pools this summer and when announced, we will be able to quickly get Chippewa & Iroquois Pools operating.

We at the Des Plaines Park District regard safety as a top priority and together we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation, hope to see you summer 2021.
