Opening Day for Centennial Beach
Is May 26th ! Get Your Season Pass
NAPERVILLE– Jump into summer as you swim in Centennial Beach’s historic stone quarry. It’s not a swimming pool, it’s not a lake, but a swimming experience like no other! Wade into the zero-depth entry and swim to depths of 15 feet. For generations, Centennial Beach has been the local “swimming hole” for many Naperville residents and their guests. It’s a great place to meet friends, gather with family, or simply relax and enjoy. 500 W Jackson Ave., Naperville, www.centennialbeach.org

NAPERVILLE– Roll them fast, roll them slow, roll them around the curve and watch them go!
