Esposito: Make a splash at Sunset Pool
In a recent survey conducted by the park district, more than 50 percent of households attended Sunset Pool within the past year, making it the top facility used by community members. Last summer, nearly 80,000 people entered the facility. Sunset Pool offers something for everyone and continues to be one of the park district’s greatest assets.
Sunset Pool employs a workforce of more than 140, 90 percent of whom live in Glen Ellyn. The lifeguard staff is among the best in the Chicago area. The pool participates in the Ellis and Associates International Pool and Water Safety Training Program. Through this program, lifeguards are trained, independently audited and put through team rescue scenarios. Every year, the aquatic staff receives top ratings for its safe practices and outstanding audits.
In addition to the safe environment, Sunset Pool is THE place to learn to swim and to compete on a team. The Gators swim team program includes more than 400 participants from ages 6 to 14 and is the largest program in the West Suburban Conference. While competitive, there are opportunities for swimmers of all abilities. The Gators’ success is driven by the hard work and dedication of the coaches and volunteers. Most swimmers participating in the Gators began in the district’s swim lesson program, where hundreds of youth are taught swimming skills and water safety instruction.
