Recreation Center Fitness Closure

11/18/20 –  To combat the rise in COVID-19 cases, the City of Highland Park implemented a Supplemental Order requiring all indoor fitness facilities to close.  The order became effective on Tuesday, November 17, at 11:59 pm.  In compliance, the Recreation Center of Highland Park indoor fitness (including the fitness floor, personal training, indoor group fitness classes) and aquatics are closed until further notice.  

What About My Membership During the Closure? 

All Recreation Center memberships (annual, 30-Day, 60-Day, 90-Day memberships) are frozen, and all billing is on hold as of Wednesday, November 18.

When operations resume, memberships will be reactivated, and the total number of days closed will be added to the end of all memberships.  The Rec Center will credit accounts for any unused daily fees paid before the closure.  

Outdoor Fitness Classes

We are committed to your ongoing health and safety and understand that fitness and exercise are essential to everyone’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.  To ensure you have access to our services, we are quickly transitioning our indoor group fitness classes to our outdoor tent and various areas outside the Recreation Center.   

As we transition to “outdoor only” classes in compliance with the City Order, starting Monday, November 23 and for a limited time, all outdoor classes will be available for FREE until further notice. 

Class reservations are required.  Rec Center members may make class reservations up to 3 days in  advance.  Resident non-members may sign up for classes no earlier than 24 hours before the class scheduled time. The capacity for each class is limited to 10 participants. 

As a reminder, face coverings are now required at all times, even while exercising outdoors.
