Just in time for the dog days of summer, here’s a list of our favorite pools and water parks. Here in the Fox Valley we love the Quarry in Batavia, Otter Cove in St. Charles, and Splash Country in Aurora.

The Quarry was recently entirely renovated and features the best sand beach in the area with a zero depth edge. The tall diving platforms are a right of passage for older kids.

Otter Cove is the St. Charles Park District’s newest facility. There is an impressive lazy river, water slides, and a great kiddie area for the little ones.

Splash Country has the second longest lazy river in Illinois, a sand beach, and a play area for the little kids.

Smaller but popular pools in the area the Swanson Pool at Pottwatomie Park in St. Charles and the Sunset Pool in Geneva.
