Splash Island is OPEN!!
Under guidelines provided for Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, we are allowed to utilize Splash Island with restrictions. We will offer the facility under two different systems:
Monday-Thursday, 90 minute “Open Swim” sessions will begin every 2 hours, beginning at Noon. Each session will be limited to 25 people and require advance registration. For all “Open Swim” sessions, including opportunities for our indoor Leisure Pool, we are utilizing the UPace app. Instructions on how to download and use the app can be found here: https://www.obparks.org/reserve Check in at the back door for a wristband to provide access to Splash Island.
EACH AND EVERY PERSON IN ATTENDANCE MUST HAVE A RESERVATION. We hope to have additional capabilities operational within the app soon that will allow one person to reserve multiple slots. Until then, we ask that you help us maintain a proper head count by creating separate accounts for all family members coming (a parent’s email address may be used multiple times for children).
Due to regulations within the guidelines we must operate under, the facility has strict head count limits. In order to operate in a consistent manner, we require anyone entering the facility to pay the usage fee, unless they are members. This includes children of all ages as well as any member of your party that may not even enter the water. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
The facility is available for private use for groups up to 25 people. You decide who you would like to share the pool with. All people will count towards the limit whether they use the water, or not. Reservations for private rentals can be found on our website at: SPLASH ISLAND RENTAL 2020
Refunds will be issued if we receive written request prior to 24 hours in advance of the reservation. Within 24 hours of the reservation, cancelations will be applied to an account as a credit for future use. If severe weather shortens a rental, the cost will be pro-rated to match the time used rounded off to the half hour.

Splash Island is our outdoor aquatic playground! Perfect for all ages, spend some fun in the sun with the whole family here. For the little splashers who might not be ready for the water, there is a splash pad with bubblers and jets, featuring fun aquatic animals. Enjoy our sundeck, perfect for lounging poolside with your book and bag while your kids play, with reclining chairs and overhead shade structures. Also on the deck are a firepit and a separate covered party area.
