Things to Know about the 2023 OUTDOOR Pool Season


  • Prepackaged snacks are available for sale.
  • Reusable/recyclable water bottles will be allowed; no glass bottles or containers are allowed. Outside food and alcohol will not be permitted.

outdoor Pool Rules and Procedures

  • Every patron entering the facility must show a valid 2023 pool pass or pay the daily admission fee.
  • Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult age 18 or older.
  • Floatation devices must be US Coast Guard approved, and children must be accompanied by an adult while wearing them. Balls, inner tubes, mermaid tales, goggles with face masks, toys, foam noodles or inflatable rings will not be allowed in the pool.
  • All children who are not toilet-trained must wear swim diapers with a swimsuit over the swim diaper.
  • Everyone is encouraged to take a shower before entering the pool area.
  • Parents, guardians and caregivers are responsible for supervising their children at all times.
  • During Public Swim there will be two safety breaks; 2:40pm and 4:40pm. They will last 20 minutes each and require that all swimmers under 18 exit the water.

We do this for multiple reasons:

– To clear the pool and allow guards a clear view of the bottom
– To allow younger swimmers a restful break; disrupting prolonged swimming that can cause fatigue
– Opportunity to reapply sunscreen

The safety break may be skipped on occasion, at the pool manager’s discretion, when attendance is low.

  • Offensive language and inappropriate behavior are prohibited and can result in the loss of pool area privileges including expulsion from the facility.
  • Running is not allowed on the pool deck, in locker rooms or shower areas.
  • Glass, food, and/or chewing gum are not allowed on the pool deck. Food must be eaten in the concession areas.
  • The Deerfield Park District is not responsible for the loss of any personal items.
  • Use of alcohol, marijuana/cannabis, and tobacco products are strictly prohibited in pool facilities.
  • Swimming is prohibited when lightning/thunder is present, including a 30 minute period after the last lightning strike/thunder is observed.
