Harper Pool Procedures - Access

Dear Swim Team Parents and Participants:


By now you are all aware that the Park District contributed resources to help renovate the indoor pool at Harper College. The pool is scheduled to come on-line by the end of the summer. 


With the new facility comes new procedures on accessing the facility. We are asking all participants that plan on swimming in the fall to stop by one of registration sites (Birchwood Recreation Center, Community Center, or Falcon Park Recreation Center) to obtain a Park District Key Fob. The key fob will act as your pass to get into the facility. Now if you already have because of a pool pass or a different membership in the park district you will not need one. 


Birchwood Recreation Center is generally open from 5:30am – about 8pm Monday – Thursday and Fridays till 7pm. Saturdays the office will be open from 7am – 2pm. Sundays are typically 8-12pm. 

Community Center is open Monday – Friday from 6 – 10pm. Saturdays & Sundays from 7am – 3p.

Falcon Recreation Center is open from Monday- Friday from 7am – 9pm, Saturdays from 10am – 8pm and Sundays from 11-6pm.


Closer to start of the fall season, everyone will need to take photo and sign a one-time facility waiver at Harper. Please either plan ahead on the first day of practices or if you wish and is recommended to visit the facility ahead of time to accomplish the photo and waiver. The facility is expected to open on August 20, 2018.


If there are any questions, please feel free to contact myself at 847-496-6205 or pgriffin@palatineparks.org.


Thank you for your time and understanding.
