Picture yourself ocean side complete with breaking surf and rolling waves. Now picture yourself right here in Mount Prospect at Big Surf Wave Pool offering all the ambiance of the beach – without the sand. Big Surf with its gleaming deck chairs and bright blue umbrellas is a perfect destination for a summer outing. Swimmers can ride the 3-foot cresting waves, or if calm waters are more your style wait just ten minutes when the huge turbine blowers take a break and the zero-depth pool settles into a relaxing cool, blue harbor.

Hungry swimmers can take a break and grab a bite to eat at our Big Surf Cafe, serving hot dogs, pizza by-the-slice, ice cream and other confections.

Safety Notice
For Open & Family Swim: Children under 10 yrs must be accompanied by an adult (17 yrs or older). Non-swimmers under 10 yrs must have an adult in the water with them at all times.

Top Lifeguards Receive Top Training
In addition to our general Red Cross Lifeguard Certification requirement, members of our Big Surf, Meadows and RecPlex Pools Staff receive even more rigorous water training and testing conducted by Metro Risk Management Agency. MRMA conducts an intensive program at our sites with follow-up surprise audits to check on staff performances throughout the season. And they've given our staff a thumbs-up all the way!
