Sleepy Hollow Pool Decision

Friday, October 20, 2023

After over 60 years of use by generations of families, the Dundee Township Park District Board of Commissioners voted to permanently close Sleepy Hollow Pool during the October 18th meeting.

While this decision was difficult, it comes after years of studies, surveys, feasibility reports, and recommendations. We understand that a pool is a community benefit, and this decision by the board was not made lightly or hastily. We extend our appreciation to the community for all of your input and fondness for this community pool, especially over the recent months.

As difficult as it is to close this chapter, we are excited by the opportunity for the community to come together to plan the future of aquatics for Dundee Township. We look forward to planning alongside you in this next chapter. In November, we will begin the process of forming a Citizens Advisory Committee to help determine the future aquatic needs of Dundee Township.

This committee will bring their thoughts, opinions, and ideas on features and amenities they want to see and support. In November, we will release more information regarding how you can be a part of the Citizen Advisory Committee. An interest form is being developed and will be shared on our website, email, social media, and at our recreation centers. Stay tuned for additional information.

We look forward to planning, alongside you, the next chapter of aquatics here at the Dundee Township Park District.
