Hold your breath! The City of Fairbury has taken the plunge to revitalize the centerpiece of Fairbury City Park. Built in 1953, our municipal pool is not only the heart of summer, but it’s also a destination that has brought the community together for decades.
Check out the conceptual plan of the new aquatic center:
- Zero-Depth Entry
- Lap Swimming/Exercise Area
- Current Channel
- Diving Board(s)
- Toddler Area
- Interactive Water Sprays and Structures
The exisiting Fairbury pool will be upgraded into an aquatic center that will serve our growing community for decades to come. From enhancing the facility’s ability to host swim competitions, to increasing the pool’s accessibility – our vision is that all generations will find what they need.
To ensure the needs of our pool users are met, the City has partnered with Larkin Aquatics and Alley Poyner Macchietto to design the new facility. This includes rejuvenating the bathhouse and concessions area!

Construction is planned to begin summer of 2018 with an anticipated grand opening over Memorial Day Weekend 2019! Stay updated on the schedule and other information on the “NEWS” page on this website.
