The Skokie Park District has you covered with two excellent outdoor aquatic facilities. The larger of these is a water park that can be found just north of Emily Oaks Nature Center and features an expansive 14000 square foot main pool with beach entry and three slides. What’s more fun than a splash pad with all sorts of water jets and sprinklers? The fully accessible one is always the hit at kids’ parties. One exciting feature, though it may be impressive for adults as well – since they can enjoy being drenched by their 300-gallon bucket.
There’s a concession stand for snacks, drinks, and frozen treats. It has ample space to accommodate all the family members who want some time out from cooking or cleaning. Lessons at Skokie Water Playground are designed for all ages and abilities. Private lessons offer a one-on-one experience, while semi-private options can accommodate up to two students with an instructor, making it perfect if you have siblings or friends who want to learn too. Your lesson times will be scheduled between 9 am – 10 am weekdays only, so please call to book appointments before going for swimming lessons.
As a swimmer, it’s important to stay in top shape. That means practicing your strokes and showing off all of those swimming skills. Luckily for you, there are lap lanes where people can get some good use out their time spent at the pool; not only that, but we also have an accessible spray-ground so even if someone doesn’t know how much water will come next – they’ll still enjoy themselves just knowing that every turn brings something new. The aquatic facilities will be closed when the temperature forecast drops under 70 degrees or if heavy rain or severe weather is expected. Lightning and thunder are also reasons for the closure of the water park to protect public safety.
Situated at 4701 Oakton St. Skokie, Illinois 60076, the Skokie Water Playground is the perfect place to take your kids this summer. With lockers with showers and a concessions stand, there’s no excuse for not being able to stay hydrated.
Pool safety is their top priority. Lifeguards are on duty to ensure that you and your family stay safe at all times. They have a few rules for visitors who want to visit the swim park – make sure they’re aware before entering what’s expected, including wearing appropriate attire (i.e., no jeans) or shoes/footwear designed primarily for outdoor activities rather than indoor ones). In addition, there is no use of cell phones while inside either changing room because this can distract those around them, leading to accidents.
