Info & Events

The Devonshire Aquatic Center is one of the two outdoor aquatic facilities at the Skokie Park District, nestled next to the Devonshire Community Center. This family-friendly facility features a beach entry into the main pool, 25-yard lap swimming lanes, a separate dive tank with a 1-meter diving board and a 3-meter drop slide, and a fully accessible splash pad. 

Lap swimming is available every morning. With our diverse community, Devonshire Aquatic Center hosts gender-specific swim sessions on Monday and Tuesday evenings throughout the season. Monday nights are male-only swim sessions and Tuesdays are females only swim sessions. See our schedule for more details on specific times for each of our programs.
