Create Your Own Path

Your fitness journey to a stronger, leaner, healthier, and happier version of YOU starts at the Rec Center. Our professional team values your individual fitness requirements – we respect your space to go at your own pace, and we are there to provide you with guidance and motivation when you need it. Energize your workout, learn new things, and have fun along the way with a fantastic breadth of programs and options to discover and the classes you love.

For nearly 20 years, the Rec Center has been the community gathering place for strength building, energy-boosting, and a healthy life. It is a place where you can connect with family and friends.  Best of all, the Rec Center is located at our newest 100-acre park, The Preserve of Highland Park.  Regularly scheduled fitness classes are held in the park when weather permits.

Safe & Clean Protocols

At the Recreation Center of Highland Park, we are using two new state-of-the-art air filtration systems in our facility, and our staff is following strict, consistent sanitation protocols to ensure you are working out and keeping fit and healthy in the safest environment you can be.

Clean Air

An AirPHX System was installed on both levels of the Rec Center and a new UV Air Filter was installed on the Center’s HVAC system. AirPhx safely and continuously kills microbes in the air, and everything the air touches 24 hours a day. Because it requires no chemicals or liquid additives, the AirPHX process is organic and safe. The UV Air Filter, unlike chemical disinfectants, provides rapid, effective inactivation of microorganisms. The system provides continuous disinfection of the air, lowering the concentration of mold, bacteria, and viruses.

Safety & Sanitation Protocols

Following the State’s safety guidelines, we are committed to the health and safety of everyone who visits. You will still see the same friendly faces you were used to, but some things will look different.
