Private pools to rent near Chicago

Next week, the Chicago Park District is expected to open just half of the pools it normally operates this time of year.

  • So it may be the right time to rent a private pool for a few hours on Swimply.

How it works: It's like Airbnb for pools. Swimming pool owners rent out their spaces for chunks of time.

  • The pandemic came with a silver lining for Swimply, which is now betting the market for opening up private homes to leisure activities extends beyond shutdowns.

Here are two options in the area starting at $60 an hour to begin with:

1. Heated indoor pool

Relax year-round at this suburban oasis featuring a Jacuzzi and steam sauna.

Location: Prospect Heights.

Cost: $60 per hour for up to five guests ($5 per hour, per guest after five guests).

Number of guests: Up to 1o.
