We're lucky that we have so many pools in the Chicago area. But the sheer number can get a little overwhelming, and there's nothing worse than a disappointed toddler on a sweltering day. We did a splash test for you so you can quickly zoom in on the best pool for your family.
15600 West Ave., Orland Park
Special perks: One of several aquatic centers in the region that offers a lazy river. Not feeling lazy? They also have six slides, fishing piers, a skate park, playground and sand volleyball area. This place has enough activities for every age, but preschoolers and up will be the ones who can really take advantage of everything they have to offer.
We wish: We had time to spend an entire week here.
