The Water Park with Something for Everyone!
Dive into a summer of fun at the Glenview Park District’s award-winning Flick Outdoor Aquatic Center! A five-pool water park complex, with plenty of free parking, Flick has something for everyone from toddlers to teens to grandparents:
- A separate fenced-in kiddie area with junior slide and spray play features, perfect for keeping the little ones safe and happy
- A large zero-depth play pool with interactive spray play features and a tropical garden play structure, a favorite of the younger grade school crowd
- A high-energy, interactive spray play area with our custom-designed water cannon game and two giant water flume slides providing hours of fun for tweens and teens
- A diving well with two drop slides and a three meter and one meter diving board
- A 25-yard, eight-lane lap/activity pool where Mom, Dad or the grandparents can swim laps or relax in a special area reserved for adults
At family-friendly Flick Aquatic Center, you can change your clothes in our family changing rooms, swim in one of our five fantastic pools or relax in the sun or shade in one of our comfortable deck chairs. Hungry? The Garden Grill has the solution! Instead of interrupting your day at the pool to go get something to eat, enjoy fresh made-to-order burgers, hotdogs, and chicken breast sandwiches at our outdoor grill. If a big meal isn’t your taste, try some of our other superb snacks like pretzels, nachos, soft serve ice cream, Hawaiian flavored shaved ice and much more! Extended hours make Flick the perfect destination for an afternoon outing or an after-work dip. Flick is also available for parties during public swim and private rentals. Learn more…

Play It Safe: New Safety Regulations at Glenview’s Outdoor Pools
Glenview’s outdoor pools are great places for summer fun and active recreation! For everybody’s health, safety, and protection, we ask our guests to observe the following new rules (For a complete list of the 2013 Outdoor Pool Regulations, click here.)
What to Bring & What to Leave at Home
All flotation devices must be “Coast Guard Approved”. Non-Coast Guard approved items include water wings, inner tubes, rafts, noodles, infant play-time inner tubes and flotation suits. Please do not bring these items into the facility.
Swimming accessories (beach balls, water pails, toys, etc.) will be allowed at the discretion of the manager in designated areas only. Even approved items may be removed from the water if attendance does not permit for safe conditions.
Kickboards, pull-buoys, fins, snorkels, and diving rings/sticks are meant for swim instruction and may only be utilized by lap swimmers or Glenview Park District Staff.
Face masks and goggles containing glass lenses are not allowed.
Playing It Safe
Games that promote prolonged breath holding or false distress are not allowed to be played within the facility.
Only soft spandex based objects are permitted to be thrown (i.e. balls, water frisbees, etc.). Prohibited items include: tennis balls, footballs, and other items with a firm exterior.
Outside camps & other groups are not permitted during Public Swim Hours at either Flick or Roosevelt Aquatic Centers, but may rent either facility during morning Private / Semi-Private Times. Only Glenview Park District camps will be allowed during Public Session.
All members of the camp/group are required to go through a swim assessment, administered onsite by pool staff (see swim testing, below).
Swim Testing (for all groups, camps, & rentals)
Every group is required to have their activity participants swim tested. These free assessments are administered onsite by pool staff. Each facility has designated swim areas for proficient swimmers as well as weaker/non-swimmers. Participants who do not successfully complete the assessment will only be limited to certain areas, must wear a wristband and must wear a fitted lifejacket when they are in or by the pool. Coast Guard approved lifejackets in a variety of sizes are available at each facility for patron use.
Children under the age of 13 who wish to use the lap swim lanes must notify a manager and pass a fitness-based swim test.
For admission to Flick Aquatic Center, you can pay the daily fee or purchase a Season Membership.
