Cool It at Your Neighborhood Pool

Take a look at what we have to offer When the weather gets hot and the kids get bored, there’s nothing like a trip to the pool to cool things off! Bring the family to the Glenview Park District’s award-winning Roosevelt Outdoor Aquatic Center and let the fun begin! Roosevelt Aquatic Center is great for families with younger children but also has plenty of attractions for older children and grown-ups.

  • The zero depth entry of our large play pool lets little ones test the water at their own pace.
  • Our interactive “island” features waterfalls, two deep water drop slides and a three meter diving platform to keep the grade schoolers entertained
  • Adults and older youngsters can get down to serious swimming in our 5 lane, 25 yard lap activity pool
  • There’s plenty of space for lounging and sunning and making new friends

Hungry? The Island Grill has the solution! Instead of interrupting your day at the pool to go get something to eat, enjoy fresh burgers, hotdogs and chicken breast sandwiches at our outdoor grill. If a big meal isn’t your taste, then try some of our other superb snacks like pretzels, nachos, soft serve ice cream, Hawaiian flavored shaved ice and much more! Roosevelt is also available for birthday parties and private rentals and offers special rates for groups during public swim hours. Learn more… Make this the summer you re-discover the great things to do right here in Glenview. Dive in to fun at Roosevelt, your neighborhood pool.

Play It Safe: New Safety Regulations at Glenview’s Outdoor Pools

Glenview’s outdoor pools are great places for summer fun and active recreation! For everybody’s health, safety, and protection, we ask our guests to observe the following new rules. For a complete list of the 2015 Outdoor Pool Regulations, click here. Check out these safety tip videos:

What to Bring & What to Leave at Home

All flotation devices must be “Coast Guard Approved”. Non-Coast Guard approved items include water wings, inner tubes, rafts, noodles, infant play-time inner tubes and flotation suits. Please do not bring these items into the facility. Swimming accessories (beach balls, water pails, toys, etc.) will be allowed at the discretion of the manager in designated areas only. Even approved items may be removed from the water if attendance does not permit for safe conditions. Kickboards, pull-buoys, fins, snorkels, and diving rings/sticks are meant for swim instruction and may only be utilized by lap swimmers or Glenview Park District Staff. Face masks and goggles containing glass lenses are not allowed.

Playing It Safe

Games that promote prolonged breath holding or false distress are not allowed to be played within the facility. Only soft spandex based objects are permitted to be thrown (i.e. balls, water frisbees, etc.). Prohibited items include: tennis balls, footballs, and other items with a firm exterior.

Outside Groups

Outside camps & other groups are not permitted during Public Swim Hours at either Flick or Roosevelt Outdoor Aquatic Center, but may rent either facility during morning Private / Semi-Private Times. Only Glenview Park District camps will be allowed during Public Session. All members of the camp/group are required to go through a swim assessment, administered onsite by pool staff (see swim testing, below).

Swim Testing (for all groups, camps, & rentals)

Every group is required to have their activity participants swim tested. These free assessments are administered onsite by pool staff.  Each facility has designated swim areas for proficient swimmers as well as weaker/non-swimmers. Participants who do not successfully complete the assessment will only be limited to certain areas, must wear a wristband and must wear a fitted lifejacket when they are in or by the pool. Coast Guard approved lifejackets in a variety of sizes are available at each facility for patron use. Children under the age of 13 who wish to use the lap swim lanes must notify a manager and pass a fitness-based swim test.
