The West Side Recreation & Park District Board of Directors and Administration have had to make the difficult decision not to open the Natatorium Swimming Pool for the 2022 summer season. The need for extensive repairs to the operating system (plumbing, electrical) make it not financially possible at this time. The COVID pandemic, rising costs for chemicals, utilities, yearly increases to minimum wage, and declining property tax revenue have forced us to continue to try to offer and do more with less. The District is actively seeking alternate sources, partnerships and other ways to provide for our community.
