Spring & Summer 2018

Spring and summer are finally on the way! So, kick off your snow boots and get ready to dive into another fun-filled season of outdoor recreation and open-air entertainment. We are always excited to see our seasonal facilities open their doors and begin another fantastic summer. Whether you are interested in swimming, golf, tennis, sailing, bird watching, concerts at Wallace Bowl or summer camp, we have it all for you!

Make sure to start the season by renewing your pool and beach season passes by April 30: if you do, you will be eligible for our Early Bird Discount! Our amazing pools open May 26 and will be open on the weekends; they'll be open seven days a week beginning June 16. Gillson and Langdon Beaches open May 26 too, and offer a great place to cool off and soak up some sun. If you'd rather keep your feet dry, the Wilmette Golf Club is trying something new with Permanent Tee Times for residents and nonresidents.

This year you can book one reserved tee time for 20 consecutive weeks for a foursome, and players can change each time without paying guest fees. Camp season hits on June 18, and our energetic staff is ready to start the fun. We have over 50 camps, so there is sure to be something to interest your child. And remember to mark your calendar for some incredible concerts and entertaining shows at the Wallace Bowl. It is the perfect way to spend a summer evening with family and friends. Or, maybe the Weekend Warriors Men's Paddle League sounds like a good way to unwind after a long week. There are just so many options!

So, get going on making your summer plans, grab your handy Explore! guide and let's do summer together! We have something for everyone and know we can make your summer a memorable one. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at awolfe@wilpark.org.
