Since 1952, the Park Forest Aqua Center has been one of Chicagoland's premiere outdoor pool experiences. The Park Forest Aqua Center is three pools in one, providing a quality summer experience for whatever your age:

  • Toddlers enjoy a beach pool, plenty of sand area, and superb instructors who have taught thousands the techniques of swimming.
  • Kids enjoy a 160-foot water slide, two drop slides, and a 15-foot-high aquatic climbing wall!        
  • East Pool Lap Swim - great for lap or casual swimming. Adults love it!
At the Park Forest Aqua Center, you feel the comfort and community of home and the fun, relaxation, and excitement of vacation all at the same time!
