Outdoor pools will close in a few weeks, but there’s still plenty of splashing to be done at the Schaumburg Park District.
Outdoor pool passes are 50 percent off and the weather is ideal for fun at Bock, Meineke and Atcher Island.
Atcher Island, 730 S. Springinsguth Road, and Meineke Pool, 220 E. Weathersfield Way, will close Aug. 21. The tropical-themed Atcher Island features water and bowl slides, a wading pool, sprayground and concessions stand. Meineke Pool features water and drop slides, a 50-meter Olympic pool, separate diving well, water playground and swim lessons.
The last outdoor pool to close for the summer will be Bock Pool, 1223 W. Sharon Lane, on Sept. 5. Bock is home to a wading pool, diving area, children’s slide, swim lessons and a
9-foot climbing wall.
Although outdoor pools will close, The Water Works, 505 N. Springinsguth Road, is open year-round. The indoor water park features three water slides, a rapid water channel, playground, diving pool, beach like entry pool and a whirlpool. Swim lessons also are available at The Water Works.
“Swimming isn’t just for summertime at the Schaumburg Park District,” said Heather Hagstrom, aquatic supervsior. “Swim lessons save lives and fall is the perfect time to register your child for swim lessons or hone their swimming skills and confidence around the water. Lessons fill up fast so don't wait!”
The Water Works will be closed Aug. 8-21 for yearly maintenance.
Volkening Lake, 900 W. Schaumburg Road, closes for the season Sept. 5. The lake features a boating dock with canoes, kayaks and paddle boats for rent.
