About the pool
Come on in… the water’s GREAT!
Orchard Brook maintains a complex of two heated swimming pools for the benefit of residents. There is a 25-yard lap pool and a kiddie pool. The pools (like the clubhouse) are largely paid for by the annual assessment, with additional funding from guest fees and other pool activities.
Most years the pool is open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Swimming lessons are available. There is a swim team for youngsters ages 5-18.
The pool is one of the features that makes Orchard Brook unique. Downers Grove
does not have a public, outdoor swimming facility, and many residents join local
private swim clubs at a cost of around $700 per season. We are very fortunate to
have our own facility.
