Whether you want to relax in the shade, soak up some rays, or stay active and get outdoors – Sholem Aquatic Center is the place to be this summer!  In addition to great open swim options, we also offer learn-to-swim programs for people of all ages, after-hours rentals, birthday parties, Junior Lifeguard training, and more.  Get the most out of your summer with a season pool pass and you’ll get to enter before everyone else every weekday!


Facility Information


With opening day on Saturday, May 29, we have been getting a lot of questions about pool plans for this summer and we wanted to make sure you stay updated. We are working with the current set of guidelines available.

All programs are subject to modification or cancellation based on recommendations from health officials and the Restore Illinois Plan. Please visit our Sholem Aquatic Center 2021 Update page for more information.
