11/27/17 – The Fox Lake Public Aquatic Center will be open again in the summer of 2018 despite some costly repairs needed at the facility. The city budget adopted earlier this month includes $10-thousand dollars for maintenance. Mayor Tom Bednarek says that will cover cosmetic repairs to get the pool ready for another season. There is question as to whether or not the slide will be operational next year. Bednarek says city officials are working with aquatic experts with hopes of repairing the water pump that services the slide. One estimate to completely replace the slide came in at $250-thousand dollars. The Fox Lake Aquatic Center will be open next year from June 9th through August 19th. The hours of operation for the pool are weekdays from 1pm to 7pm and weekends from noon to 7:30pm. In addition, private parties can be scheduled on weekends between 10am and noon and there will be an adult swim on Wednesday’s from 6:30pm to close. After the pool is all closed for the summer, and before it is drained, there will be a special dog swim offered on August 26.
