Adventure Island / Lap Pool


Due to COVID-19 restrictions our leisure pool is not open at this time. Our lap pool and therapy pool are open to our members only with restrictions. Reservations must be made in advance as only 8 swimmers are allowed in the lap pool at one time and only 2 in the therapy pool.  Download this PDF for reservation instructions.

If recreation and water go hand in hand for you, you’ll flip for the aquatics facilities at The Centre of Elgin! With three pools, you’re sure to find the right use, depth, and features for your every swimming and splashing need.

For more information, check out The Centre of Elgin website, or contact us at 847-531-7030.

A recreation pool features a zero-depth entry, geysers, and whirling water, as well as a shipwrecked boat for sliding fun, tipping toucans for water showers, and a 25-foot water slide with a separate plunge pool.

Serious fitness swimmers will make a splash in our eight-lane, 25-yard competition pool, ranging in depth from five feet to 12 feet. Take a plunge off our two one-meter diving boards or a three-meter board.

Specialized programming will be available in a nearby therapy pool. The pool will be used for the Sherman Hospital Wellness Center, rehabilitation therapy, special recreation programming, senior water exercise, and warm-up prior to swim competitions.
