Beginning today, you can get a break from the heat at the Chase Park outdoor pool (located on Ashland between Lawrence and Leland). The schedule for July 5 to August 13 is here, along with the pool rules.
But the Park District says that, due to a lack of qualified lifeguards, many of the city pools won't be open this summer. Uptown's other options -- Gill Park, Uplift HS, Amundsen HS, and Welles Park -- are closed. A map of all the pools is here.
If you'd like to apply for a lifeguard position, there's a $600 incentive bonus. Apply here.
And there's always Lake Michigan!
