The Pool is Open

Did you know that Winnemac Park has a swimming pool?  It's had to spot, seeing as it's tucked away inside Amundsen High School. But it's there, and it's open again (it was closed for a time for repairs). There are no hours posted on the Chicago Park District website because it opened too late to be listed as part of the current session of events, but it's open and available for you to use. Best of all, at least for some uses like the daily open swim, it's free!  An open adults only (18+) swim happens every weeknight M-F from 8:30pm - 9:15pm.  

There are also sessions specifically for kids of various ages.  Registration might be required for some activities at the pool (contact Lisa at or at (312) 742-5101 for details), but you don't need to register to check out the pool and ask any questions you may have (there are lifeguards on duty any time the pool is open), just walk right in to Amundsen's door number 4 (the southernmost door along Damen Ave; it's clearly labelled with a big "4") any weekday after 4pm and check it out.
