Summer swim lessons are held at both facilities during the summer for individuals six months of age and older. Instruction is available in the form of group swim lessons, semi-private swim lessons, and private swim lessons. During the summer, classes for upper level swimmers are generally offered outdoors in the morning during the weekdays.

During the summer the Bartlett Park District runs a recreational swim team at the outdoor aquatic center called the Bartlett Barracudas. The team is for individuals from five years of age through 18 years of age. The team fosters healthy sportsmanship and promotes swimming technique. It is strongly recommended that individuals wishing to join the team successfully complete the Bartlett Park District swim lesson program in its entirety. Registration for the Barracudas is published in the spring park district brochure.

Rental/Group Outings

The outdoor aquatic center is available for groups and private rentals all summer. Groups of 15 or more receive a discounted pool rate with a five-day advanced notice to pool management. Birthday party groups have the option of renting a party room inside of the Bartlett Community Center before heading outside to the aquatic center. The facility is available after-hours during the peak summer season for private rentals.


Special Events

A variety of special events are held at our outdoor aquatic center during the summer. These events are open to the public and are generally free for Bartlett Aquatic Center pass holders. Events are published in the summer park district brochure.



To ensure the safety of our patrons and staff we have rules and regulations in place that all individuals must adhere to at all times. The aquatic center is staffed during all operational hours (including private rentals) with professional lifeguards. The Bartlett Park District is a client of Jeff Ellis and Associates, Inc, the world’s premier aquatic risk management and lifeguard training firm. Jeff Ellis and Associates licensed lifeguards are required to successfully pass a rigorous 24 hour training course and renew their licenses with an equally rigorous renewal course every year. Additionally, lifeguards must attend ongoing training every month in order to ensure the highest level of performance. To maintain accountability, lifeguard vigilance is tested during operational hours by the use of submerged mannequins and simulated live guests-in-distress. As a client of Jeff Ellis and Associates, the Bartlett Park District is subject to random, unannounced audits during the summer by a company representative to ensure compliance with their risk program.
