Palos Heights Parks and Recreation Center has a beautiful Olympic size outdoor pool. The Palos Heights Pool is a hidden gem in Palos Heights. The pool features a Z shape main pool with a drop slide, diving board and a body slide. The pool’s depth range is three feet to 13 feet.

The pool also features a wading pool for our younger swimmers with a depth of two feet. The pool opened in 1972 and recently saw major renovation to the mechanics of the pool which helps creates the crystal clear water!


The Palos Pool offers swim lessons for children of all abilities as well as diving lessons. You can rent one of our party decks to help celebrate any summer event! Our full service concession stand is there to fill your sweet tooth needs!


The lifeguards at Palos Pool are American red Cross trained. Our lifeguards also complete six hours of additional training each month during the pool season. We pride ourselves on offering the safest environment possible to our patrons.


We offer a variety of pool pass options along with daily drop in fees.
