Chicago’s Lifeguards are Off Duty

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: are still happening across the park district. Some of this week’s movies include The Goonies, Back to the Future, and Ghostbusters.

This popular Uptown neighborhood beach located in Lincoln Park offers patrons many amenities. A serene dune area hosts a rare “panne” habitat — a flat, wet and open sandy area — for birds.
