Family Pool


Plainfield’s Only Indoor Waterpark

Plainfield YMCA WaterslidesThe Cliff and Lois Berglund Family Aquatic Center—or the Family Pool, as we call it—opened in November 2008. 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.
