Can I bring my cooler?
You are more than welcome to pack your own lunch or dinner and enjoy it in out picnic area outside the park. Unfortunately, coolers and outside food are not allowed inside the park but, swimmers can enter and leave the park as many times as they wish by showings their receipt at the gate. We also have a wide variety of menu options available at our concession stand located inside the park
What types of clothing are allowed in the water?
Swimsuits are required to enter the water. All additional clothing must be clean and may require approval by a facility manager. Jeans and athletics shorts are not permitted.
What types of flotation devices are permitted?
All flotation devices must be U.S. Coast Guard approved. Complimentary life jackets are available at the park. Children wearing lifejackets must be within arms reach or a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Inflatable flotation devices of any kind are prohibited.
What happens if it rains during my visit?
We will only clear the pool and deck in the event that lightning is seen of thunder is heard. Swimming is prohibited at all outdoor swimming pools during this time. If this occurs, the facility will close for a 20 minute period after the last lightning or thunder is detected. If the facility remains clear for 1 hour, the park will close and a rain date will be declared. Patrons do not need to stay at the facility during this time. Once a rain date is declared, your receipt will serve as your rain check. If you do not have a receipt, you will not receive a rain check, no exceptions. The Joliet Park District is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged receipts. Once a receipt is redeemed, it cannot be reissued for subsequent rain checks. All receipts must be redeemed before the last day of the season in which they are issued. Rain dates will be posted here on the website. NO CASH REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED.
