Exciting and not-so-exciting news is coming out of the Round Lake Area Aquatics Center, located at 860 Hart Road. Round Lake area residents may already be aware that a broken pipe underneath the main pool has forced the center to postpone its opening, originally scheduled for May 25th. June 15th is the approximate date for the pool opening. For up to date information on the continuing status of the pool, visit the Round Lake Park District Announcements page.
On a happier note, a brand new splash pad has replaced the kiddie pool, and will accommodate toddlers through age 12. The splash pad will be open during normal business hours when public swim rates will apply (see below.) Additionally, the splash pad will be open for the following hours, at which time admission will be $1 for Residents and $2 for Non-Residents. Sunday evenings are FREE!
Splash Pad Extra Hours (admission $1 Res/$2 Non-Res)
Sunday 9:30-11:00 a.m. and 7:15-8:45 p.m. (Evening hours FREE)

Tot Swim hours will no longer be available with the closing of the kiddie pool. The additional splash pad hours will help fill the hole for patrons with young children, but the area will NOT be age-restricted to toddlers.
