The recently completed Lisle Park District Strategic Master Plan has recommended several priorities. One of those is to expand adult and senior citizen fitness and wellness programs. We have seen steady participation in programs like yoga and Zumba for example, and we intend to expand those opportunities moving forward. However, another recommendation from the plan is to consider alternative uses of the fitness center itself because, “The facility has limited users and the use may already be well provided in the community by other operators.” This statement, coupled with our direct observations of declining membership and escalating operating costs, has caused staff to present the Board of Park Commissioners with a recommendation to consider other uses of that space that do not require subsidy. Other possible uses include multi-purpose space to accommodate the increased demand we have seen for camps, special events, group rentals, art/theater and cultural enrichment classes, and more adult and senior fitness programs. These other uses would be geared to have a positive effect on the financial position of the park district, as opposed to being a revenue drain.
The future of Community Park Fitness has been a topic of conversation at the Board of Park Commissioners' meetings this past fall and we are grateful for the members who have attended these meetings and for those who have voiced their opinions. At the October meeting, the Park Board directed staff to prepare a 2024 budget that reflects three (3) months of fitness center operations – operations through March 30, 2024. For what it’s worth, staff are saddened by this situation as we fully appreciate the important role Community Park Fitness has played in many people's lives over the years. We recognize the relationships formed there amongst members and between members and our staff are indeed special.
Moving forward, staff are working with other fitness center operators in the immediate vicinity with similar membership rates to develop opportunities Community Park Fitness members can explore, including the park districts of Downers Grove and Woodridge. Staff will send out additional information regarding existing membership terms for current members and details about these new opportunities as they are formalized over the coming weeks.
