NOTICE: Due to the pandemic situation, pool passes will not be offered for the 2020 season.

Due to the limited number of people that will be allowed to use the pool, we are not offering a pool pass option for the summer of 2020.

About Our Lifeguards

At the Park Ridge Park District, we’re serious about safety. All our lifeguards are Starguard Elite 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 preseason 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 online application on our job posting page. Canidates that are chosen to work will get lifeguard certified through the Park District.
