    I will be bringing a small bday party to the pool and want to be sure you will be open either July 28 or August 1st from 12-6?

    • Kewanee Park District says:

      Yes, the pool is scheduled to be open on those days. However, the pool being open depends largely on the weather so it would be a good idea to call ahead if the weather is questionable. Also, we have a policy that if there are not more than 20 patrons at the pool by 2pm, the pool will close. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at 309-852-2872.

      Thank you,
