What is your 2020 vision?

As we look to achieve new resolutions, Gurnee Park District is proud to support and help you try something NEW! From active lifestyle resolutions to new hobbies, make a vision board for yourself and get out of your comfort zone. Wishing you all the best in 2020!

An active lifestyle resolution  

It can be difficult to find what works for you, but Gurnee Park District through its many parks, facilities and programs including FitNation and GO GURNEE look to support you throughout your physical health journey. Here are a few resources for you from Executive Director Susie Kuruvilla's winter blog:
  • Sports - Stay active by reconnecting with friends, family or a sport you previously played. Choose from a variety of sports, dance classes, and/or swim lessons.  You can also dedicate time on your own at a variety of available open gym and swim times at both fitness locations.
  • Fitness - FitNation memberships, group exercise and/or personal training is a great way to learn about a fitness routine and stay motivated all year long. 
  • Walking - GO GURNEE: GO encourages the community to walk at least 30 minutes a day! This is something you can do with our walking club or on your own time. 

A new hobby resolution 

​ Try something new or revisit a hobby you have not done in awhile. Make this activity time for you to reflect, make time for yourself and have fun.

  • Art – Adult art classes are available every season.  From beginners to advance, let your creativity shine through a variety of mediums.
  • Gardening -  Garden plots are available for the Gurnee community to rent at O'Plaine Park.  Never had a green thumb before? What better way to learn than by sharing the experience with others.  Garden plots are available to rent for $25 each season.  Reservations can be made online starting March 1. The season will begin on May 1 and end November 15. 
  • Volunteering – What a great way to get involved, give back, and make friends.  Help serve at our monthly mixers, make memories by assisting at our special events, or share your passion by coaching soccer, basketball or T-Ball.  ​There is also a volunteer fair at the Village of Gurnee on January 15.  

From our family to yours, we wish you a healthy and happy new year.
