Pool Openings and Memberships for Summer 2018

There’s no better way to beat Chicago’s summer heat than by lounging around at the pool. But if your kids are anything like mine, they usually don’t last long once you’re there. Someone’s cold, someone’s tired, someone’s hungry… or all of the above! Some days it’s just not worth all the effort (or expense).

That’s why we buy a family pool membership every spring. The best thing about it is that we don’t have to commit an entire morning or afternoon to frolicking in the pool just to get our money’s worth. Instead, we pop in for a quick swim a few times per week all season long. It’s the perfect summer fun default! Many memberships come with cool perks like early admission, special movie nights and front-of-the-line privileges, so you’re definitely getting the most bang for your buck. Early bird pricing is available now for almost all of the pools listed so you can get ready to splash your way through summer.
