Dive in to summer at East End Pool and Norman P. Smalley Pool at York Commons.  Whether you're new to swimming, want to purchase a season pool pass, or host a pool party, the Elmhurst Park District has everything you need for a fun, safe summer in the water.

The Elmhurst Park District is working with the Starfish Aquatics Institute to develop new, safe and creative lessons and programing for 2014. 

Private & Semi-Private Swim Lessons

Private and Semi-Private swim lessons are available with our certified Starfish Swim Instructors for participants ages 3 years to adult.  At the first lesson the instructor will test the student(s) and complete an Individual Aquatic Plan that will be used for the lessons.  Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.  To sign up please fill out the Private Swim Lesson Application (under "Pool Schedules & Downloads") and return to Wagner Community Center or East End and Smalley Pools starting June 1.  The prices listed are for 30-minute lessons that are scheduled at times mutually convenient for you and the instructor, during open swim times.  Please Note:  For multi-swimmer lessons we do not find the other participant.

Lifeguard Harry Bell Saves A Life Before Even Reporting for Duty

Seventeen-year-old Fenwick High School senior Harry Bell didn't anticipate how critical freshman year health class would prove, but the importance of his training hit home in January 2014, when his father suffered a heart attack.  Certified in CPR thanks to the class, Bell instinctively took action, completing over five minutes of chest compressions until his mother relieved him due to fatigue.  Together they saved his father's life, keeping the oxygen pumping to his brain until an ambulance arrived.
