Ways To Stay Cool This Summer

Stay cool this Summer with the Champaign Park District! Here’s a list of ways to cool off in this summer heat.

Sholem Aquatic Center

Sholem Aquatic Center is jam-packed with features that are guaranteed to make a splash: a zero depth pool with play-and-spray features, an 8-lane 25-yard lap pool, a kiddie pool with slide, a tube slide that’ll send you into the lazy river, and enclosed body slides (must be at least 42” tall to ride).
