Glencoe Beach

GLENCOE BEACH IS now closed FOR THE SEASON

During beach season, Glencoe Beach is ideal for group and family outings, work picnics, or summer camp groups! Lifeguards are on duty daily during operational hours between Memorial Day and Labor Day. During the off-season, visitors can enjoy Glencoe Beach from sunrise to sunset without a season pass. Dogs are not allowed on the beach between May 15 and Labor Day.

Reminder: If the water is not protected by lifeguards, enter at your own risk. The minimum age to enter the beach area alone is 12 years of age. To enter the water, while unguarded, patrons must be at least 16 years of age, per the Illinois Department of Public Health. Persons under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other responsible person at least 16 years of age while entering the water. Swimming alone is not recommended.
