O’Fallon’s Alligator’s Creek Aquatic Center opens to the public on June 1st, 2020. Due to the need for additional social distancing requirements and occupancy limits, the following guidelines have been put in place. The guidelines will initially be in place through at least June 15 and will be re-evaluated periodically.

Alligator’s Creek will be available only for single-session admissions, and all guests must make prior reservations for one of the three sessions per day using the link below. Payment is due at the time of reservation; 200 slots will be available for each session. Session times are as follows:

  • 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

What will be the entrance and exiting procedures at the beginning and end of each session?

  • Each guest will enter the pool at the main entrance. Both sides of the breezeway will become entrance points. This will allow more space between guests to allow social distancing while reducing line time.
  • As guests approach the facility, there will be markers indicating 6 feet and social distance reminder signs.
  • At the end of the session, guests will exit the pool by the gate between the slide and the bath house.
  • Guests will need to show cashiers their reservation confirmation and their identity verified to enter the facility.

  • Once a guest exits the facility there will be NO re-entry.
  • There will be no lost and found at this time.

What guest amenities will be available during my session?

  • There will be a limited number of loungers available to guests. Guests will not be allowed to move deck furniture.
  • No tubes will be available for the lazy river. The river will be a “walk-through” river.
  • Lifejacket rentals are not available. Guests need to bring their own U.S. Coast Guard-approved floatation devices, if necessary.
  • Guest will need to stand 6 feet away from each other while waiting for slides and diving board.
  • The floating bridge and basketball hoops will be unavailable at this time.
