Our team would not be able to accomplish our missions related to STEM outreach without the gracious support of our many sponsors. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Tremont Betterment Association (Tremont Turkey Festival) for helping to sponsor our team once again this season.
We would also like to the thank the Tremont First National Bank for paying for one of our team dinners during our trip earlier this year to the Hub City Regional in Texas. Meals for the entire team can be expensive. As the team parents are well aware, a fed Roboteer is a happy Roboteer! ... See moreSee less
Tremont Community Summer / Pool Update
It’s nearly pool season and the park district is in full summer hiring mode. If you are interested in seasonal work, or know someone who is, please check out our website for job opportunities or stop in the Fitness Center Office to fill out an application. If you need information regarding lifeguard training and re-certification classes please call the office.
Our intention is to open the community pool at the end of May or first part of June, depending on weather.
With the generous support of the Tremont Betterment Association we have retained services to repair the existing pool liner. This repair will take place as warm weather allows and we are hopeful to begin repair in early April.
Swim team, swimming lessons, pool passes and reservations will proceed as usual.
The Tremont Park District along with the Tremont Betterment Association, Village of Tremont, Tremont Commerce Association and Winning Communities are working together on a project to replace the aging pool liner. The date of that project is contingent on the success of this season’s repair. Communication and updates of this progress will be posted on our website as more information is received.
Registration is now open for recreational baseball and softball. Please register at the main office or online as soon as possible. Early registration is essential for scheduling. Volunteer coach applications are available on line and at the office.
Thank you for your continued support of park district programs. We look forward to serving you this summer. ... See moreSee less

There is a phone scam hitting central Illinois. Scammers will call, let your phone ring once and hang up. The area code will be a local one (309,217 or 815). The scammers intention is for you to think it is important that you call back since it was a local call, but it is not. It is basically a spoof call. The scammers are calling from a foreign country and if you call the number back, you are charged an outrageous fee.
