Barefoot Bay, Spray Park, and Diamond Lake Raincheck/pass policy

Safety is our top priority. Therefore, the pool, water areas, and beach may close temporarily during severe weather conditions. If a facility closes for the day due to weather, you may be eligible for a Rain Pass. In order to take advantage of the Rain Pass policy, you must present your receipt when requesting a pass. You will also need to have been at the facility for less than two hours before the decision was made to close for the day. A Rain Pass will not be issued without a receipt. Passes will only be issued once and will not be reissued if lost or misplaced. If the temperature outside is below 70°, the Park District’s outdoor aquatics facilities will remain closed.
