 Your Safety is Our Business

All Morton Grove Park District lifeguards are certified through Ellis & Associates, a leader in the aquatics industry. In accordance with the Ellis & Associates International Pool and Waterpark Lifeguard training program, our guards must complete a minimum of 28 hours of initial training. Due to College and High School students who have returned to school, we will make every effort to keep all pool areas open. However, there may be times when certain areas must be closed due to staffing. Our top priority is to provide a safe environment for our patrons.
