As CPS students head back to the classroom, the lifeguards at Chicago’s public beaches are officially off duty for the rest of the year.
Some beach activities will still be open to the public (e.g. volleyball leagues) and you’ll still have access to the sand and sun, but swimming will be at your own risk.
Alternatively, the Park District’s indoor pools are open year round and lifeguards are always on duty.
Lifeguards will return to Chicago’s beaches on Friday, May 22, 2015.
Side Note: Movies in the Park are still happening across the park district. Some of this week’s movies include The Goonies, Back to the Future, and Ghostbusters.
