An aerial view of Peterson Park with pool visible, as well as buildings and playground complex.

CURRENTLY THE POOL IS CLOSED. Vernon Township is in the process of reviewing State of Illinois Guidelines regarding the opening of certain facilities. Based on these recent directions, Vernon Township will try to open the pool in a limited capacity. Please check back for more information.


Come visit the Vernon Township Aquatic Center. Located at Peterson Park, we offer a swimming pool, water slide and kiddy pool. We also offer private swim lessons with our American Red Cross trained lifeguards.  

A concession stand with various items such as nachos, popcorn, slushies, ice cream and candy is open during pool hours.

Please note, we do not accept credit or debit cards.
