Is your swimming pool open this summer? Check with our guide

CHICAGO — The Park District is expected to open 37 pools this summer — but more than half of the city’s public pools will not be open for the season, officials said Tuesday.

The neighborhood faces a shortage of lifeguards that has made it difficult to hire enough staff for all of Chicago’s beaches and pools. It was unclear for months if any of the city’s public pools would open, but the Park District announced some would open on July 5.

Wondering if your neighborhood pool is open? We have mapped and listed all 77 pools and their status. We will update it if other pools open or close.
