Indoor pool & whirlpool update:
Phase 2 of our Natatorium refresh is scheduled to commence on Monday, October 14. Phase 2 will consist of a complete upgrade to the decking and floors with tile, and we expect the total project to last 6 weeks. As you may remember, Phase 1 consisted of the installation of a new pool liner. During the construction process, the indoor pool WILL NOT be available for use, please feel free to utilize our other locations with indoor pools, including our Union Station location at 444 W. Jackson, Chicago, IL. We appreciate your patience during this process, and we will continue to update on progress on the renovations.
