Indoor Waterpark


The Cliff and Lois Berglund Family Aquatic Center—also known as the Family Pool around the Y—is Plainfield’s only indoor waterpark. Located next door to our eight-lane Lap Pool, the Family Pool is available for open swim on a daily basis and features a number of great amenities, including:

  • Zero-depth entry. Just like the beach!
  • Warm water kept at a comfortable 88°
  • A “Water Vortex”—great for swimming and low-impact exercises.
  • Four waterslides: Two big waterslides, one small waterslide and one tot waterslide.
  • The Splash Playground.

Additionally, the Family Pool is the home pool to a variety of YMCA programs:

Water Fitness Classes: The Y offers free water fitness classes for Full Members, including Swimnastics, Aqua Aerobics and Water Walking.

Youth Swimming Lessons: Private, group and adaptive swim lessons are held in our Lap Pool and Family Pool year-round for children six months and older.

Birthday Parties: Held Friday through Sunday at designated times. To book your party, please contact Shannon Stawikowski at [email protected] or give us a call at (815) 267-8600.
