Outdoor Pools

Due to College and High School students who have returned to school, we will make every effort to keep all pool areas open. However, there may be times when certain areas must be closed due  to staffing. Our top priority is to provide a safe environment for our patrons. We also reserve the right to close Centennial Aquatic Center due to low attendance (fewer than 25 patrons within an hour).

To check the status of the pool, please call 847-692-5044. Thank you.

About Our Lifeguards

At the Park Ridge Park District, we’re serious about safety. All our lifeguards are Ellis Trained in Lifeguarding, CPR for the Professional Rescuer, First Aid, AED and Oxygen Administration. To further ensure they’re always prepared for an emergency, lifeguards receive extensive pre-season training, and they’re required to attend four hours of in-service per month, in addition to participating in unannounced audits coordinated by Park Ridge Park District pool managers to test any of their skills at any time.

If you are interested in becoming a Lifeguard with The Park Ridge Park District, please fill out an on line application, on our job posting page. Canidates that are chosen to work will get Lifeguard certified through the Park District.
