CHICAGO — The Park District has begun to close public pools for the season as summer camps end and the Aug. 22 start of the public school year nears.
Many lifeguards are high school and college students, and the district will need to close pools as they return to class, according to a Park District news release.
Pools have been closing since Friday, and the remaining will be closed by Sunday. A list of which are closed is available here.
Indoor park pools will reopen for the fall the week of Sept. 6. Schedules will be posted ahead of the season. Swim memberships can be bought online starting Sept. 6.
Beaches will remain open for swimming 11 a.m.-7 p.m. daily through Labor Day, which is Sept. 5.
