Be social ALL summer!


​Blog Author: Executive Director, Susie Kuruvilla | Summer happens to be my favorite season. It is the best time to get out, enjoy the beautiful weather, your family, and all Gurnee has to offer. This summer, we are delighted to offer a wide variety of ways to make sure your summer is social!

For our younger residents, the first session of day camp starts today, June 10! Staff at Hunt Club Park and Viking Park look forward to weeks of fun that lead to years of memories! It's truly a highlight of my summer to see campers enjoying their lunchtime cookouts and slip & slide days.

Hunt Club Park Aquatic Center opens Memorial Day weekend, so don't forget to purchase your season pass, or visit with the $10 daily online pass! Our community pool is convenient, safe, and affordable. When not at the pool, we have plenty of FREE special events to choose from including summer concerts at Viking Park, themed GO GURNEE walks, Neighborhood Nights and Fitness in the Park, courtesy of FitNation. There are plenty of ways to enjoy family time and meet new neighbors at over 20 parks and playgrounds this summer.

One of my favorite ways to connect with others is with friendly competition. Pickleball is a great way to compete, stay active and be social.Join me at our six outdoor court complex at O'Plaine Park! Another way I plan to stay active is with this summer's GO GURNEE Sedentary Smackdown. The challenge is to walk 100 miles in 100 days. Be sure to share your progress by joining the Facebook group. With that said, members of FitNation can share their success with each other too! From workouts, to fitness achievements the NEW FitNation Gurnee Official Members Only Group on Facebook is a great way to track progress, be supportive, receive encouragement, and stay motivated.

Participate in camp, meet your neighbors, achieve health/wellness goals, and share your experiences with us. This summer is all about being social. Get out and enjoy it! On behalf of Gurnee Park District, we're looking forward to a super summer with you!
