Ervin Park Swimming Pool

Opened in 1957, the Tuscola Ervin Park swimming pool is a local summer tradition!  

The pool is a large surface area (100' x 60'), full depth (3' 8" to 12' deep) main pool area with a 30' x 40' diving well equipped with springboards and a 72' long water tube slide.  Additionally, the area features a wading pool for small children, a pavilion seating area for picnics, Tropical-Sno shaved ice operation  and vending machine concessions.

The pool is located inside Ervin Park, Tuscola, Illinois and the phone number is 217-253-4932 (only during the operating season).






It is that time of year when we begin to plan for the summer pool season!   During the season (May to September), we hire pool managers, lifeguards and cashiers.  All are welcome to apply.  Lifeguards holding a lifeguard certificate will have priority in hiring, but we do also assist non-certified, interested individuals with getting into a certification class.    Positions range from part-time to full-time summer positions.  The pool is open all 7 days of the week, weather dependent, and hours will range from 9 AM to 10 PM.  Employees must be 16 years of age, or 15 with a valid work permit.
