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. Swimmers can ride the 3-foot cresting waves or, if calm waters are more your style, wait ten minutes when the huge turbine blowers take a break and the zero-depth pool settles into a relaxing cool, blue harbor.
