Thanks for participating in Patch's Readers' Choice! Our nomination period is now over. Check back July 23, when live voting for your favorites begins!
The stifling heat of summer has descended upon the Southland, and everyone's looking for ways to cool off.
Some won't have to go far—to swimming pools in their backyards—but others will flock to community pools for a quick dip on a hot day. Some pools are laidback oases, perfect for a book and a cold drink. Others are too fun to resist a ride down the slide and splashing with the youngsters.
So tell us—What's your preferred public pool in the Southland? There's no doubt that we have a repertoire of options in Orland Park, , Oak Forest, Palos, Chicago Heights, Homewood-Flossmoor, Evergreen Park, Oak Lawn, Frankfort, New Lenox and Mokena.
Nominate your favorite community pool by telling us in the comments. Here are a few suggestions; however, they STILL NEED TO BE NOMINATED to be included in the poll! As pools or water parks are nominated, they'll be added to the list and bolded.
- in Orland Park
- in Palos Heights
- in Homewood
We will accept nominations through July 9.
