In the best interests of community safety, the Mt. Prospect Park District has made the difficult decision to keep Big Surf Pool closed for the 2020 summer season.
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.
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.
