Important Information and Regulations: 

Important Information

Minimum Age Requirements

Children 12 years of age or younger will not be permitted to enter the Hall Quarry Beach facility without the supervision of a responsible person 16 years of age or older. This policy is due to the inability of young children to fully appreciate the dangers of the water and other hazards. 

Non Smoking Policy

Please abide by the Non-Smoking Policy at the Hall Quarry Beach. This policy will be strongly enforced.

Closings Due to Inclement Weather

The Hall Quarry Beach will be open whenever weather conditions permit. While public safety is our primary responsibility during extreme weather conditions, fiscal responsibility for the taxpayers of the Batavia Park District is our concern during marginal weather conditions. The Batavia Park District reserves the right to close the Hall Quarry Beach at any time during extreme and marginal weather conditions.

Picnic Information

Hall Quarry Beach allows picnics and other snack foods. Vending machines and a concession stand are available. We request guests clean up any garbage created from their food and beverages. Alcoholic beverages and glass containers of any kind are strictly prohibited.

Deck Rental

Are you interested in having a birthday party, family get together or a business meeting during open swim hours? You can reserve the deck during open swim for your next party. The deck provides tables, chairs and a space for your guests to store their belongings while they are swimming. The deck will be roped off during your party so only your group will be able to use it. This will be monitored by pool staff. Cost is $100 for up to 3 hours.

Quarry Exit and Re-entry

Exit and Re-entry within the same day is not permitted without a valid reason. Patrons who have a need to make a short departure from the Quarry are asked to make their intentions known to the cashier or admissions person prior to leaving the park.

Diaper Rule for Young Swimmers

Concerns about the spread of E-coli and other bacteria at aquatic facilities have caused the Illinois Department of Public Health to create new rules requiring non-toilet trained children to wear tight fitting rubber or plastic pants at pools or beaches. To comply with this rule, the Batavia Park District requires all children, 30 months of age or younger, to wear a "swim diaper", a tight fitting rubber or plastic pair of pants or a swimsuit with a rubber or plastic lining. Parents will be required to purchase a swim diaper for their children if they do not have the appropriate garments when entering the park. Swim diapers are available at the Quarry for $1.

Closing Guidelines

  1. Hall Quarry Beach will not open for public swimming if the air temperature is below 70 degrees.
  2. Hall Quarry Beach may close if there are less than 20 patrons in the park, or if the air temperature falls below 70 degrees.
  3. If thunder is heard or lightning is sighted during swimming hours, operations will be suspended for a minimum of 30 minutes or the Quarry will close as is appropriate for the situation.
  4. Tornado "watches" will be announced to the patrons.
  5. In the event of a tornado "warning" the park will be closed and all patrons will be directed to immediately leave the facility.
  6. Parents are required to pick-up their children or make arrangements for their children to be picked up promptly. Please make sure your children have telephone numbers and names of people they can contact for rides to reach home safely.
  7. NO rain tickets will be issued.
