The year’s outdoor pool season will run through September 6!
The good news doesn’t stop rolling in. With Chicago having moved into Phase 5 of reopening on Friday, June 11 the city is quickly returning to its former glory. Winter is behind us, summer is on our doorstep and things are looking up.
Now a spokeswoman for Chicago Park District has announced that all outdoor swimming pools and spray pools will open up to the public on Friday, June 25. The Chicago Park District oversees the management of approximately 49 outdoor pools and 28 indoor pools ranging from Rogers Park to Hegewisch.
Many pools were closed for much of the season last year and some suburban pools opened with strict restrictions after officials decided they were not safe.
There have been fears that outdoor pools would be closed for the duration of this summer but with Chicago now back to normal all pools will reopen and in an email, the official spokeswoman Michele Lemons revealed that they will open without any coronavirus-related rules or restrictions whatsoever.
After opening on June 25 the outdoor pools will stay open daily through Saturday, September 6. You can find the full list and map of all Chicago Park District pools as well as their opening hours here.
