Park Center in The Glen

Park Center in The Glen

As a member since 2002 I have experienced what The Park Center has to offer. I have used the facility for daily work outs, yoga classes and swimming. This doesn’t touch the surface of what is offered at The Park Center in The Glen in Glenview IL.

Kathleen McInnis manages a good portion of the Park Center. She is a fabulous person who is more energetic than anyone I know. I so appreciate her taking time from her very busy day to explain to you about her duties and what the Park Center offers. Kathleen has a storied history of working at other work out and training facilities in three states. She came to Park Center with great knowledge and experience. She is awesome!

Kids Have it All at Park Center in The Glen in Glenview

Not only is there Splash Landings activity pool, basketball leagues and the walking track, there are many classes for all ages. This is especially true with the preschool program for 2-4 year olds as well as numerous parent and tot and preschool specialty classes.

The Cultural Arts wing is the home of Glenview Children’s Theatre program, dance and ceramics studios and fine arts classes for all ages. You can celebrate your child’s special day with a Pool Party or Pick-a-Party themed party for school-age and preschool children.

I’m sure there are many more activities I have not included but all you have to do is walk into the Park Center’s main entrance in The Glen in Glenview. As you walk into the lobby, the front desk is on the right. There are always two or three experts present to answer your questions. They can tell you where to go for program registration, fieldhouse rentals, pool memberships and general questions. Open Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-7:30 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
