Celebrating Our Heritage & 70 Years in the Community in 2024

In the early 1950’s, small group of Downers Grove residents came together with a common purpose: to build a pool. They took a lot on faith – hiring an architect and buying property before having the money to pay for the construction of the pool. Their vision would eventually become a reality when the corporation was formed on February 19th, 1954, and has become what is known today as the Downers Grove Swim & Racquet Club.
