Bear Paddle Swim School, Orland Park

This swim school and clubhouse specializes in swim lessons for children as young as six months old, featuring a warm-water aquatic center with saltwater chlorination and ultraviolet disinfection. In response to its family clientele, the space was designed with kids and parents in mind: a special “kid wash” area makes rinsing off fun for kids and easy on parents, while changing rooms are setup to accommodate families with private changing areas and kid-sized bathrooms, sinks and mirrors.

Waiting and seating areas feature walls of large windows, allowing dry viewing into the pool and gymnasium areas. The reception area includes an information center, seating, coat closet, and retail area.

The clubhouse includes a 700 square foot gymnasium with kitchen and event room, perfect for birthday parties and events for up to 40 guests.
