Park district notes

[September 04, 2008]  As fall approaches, our thoughts begin to focus on indoor activities. The Lincoln Park District's Indoor Sports Center is your perfect spot to exercise and keep motivated to stay in shape. If you just want to use our walking track or take advantage of a personal trainer, we have the exact fit to your fitness needs.

DonutsCheck out for our updated aerobics schedule. Go to the "Facilities & Parks" tab, click to open the page, scroll down and you'll see the pages for class descriptions and another for the schedule. New classes have been added and many of our standards are there too. We offer classes for all fitness levels, from young to specifically targeted for the senior citizens. Our instructors will get you in shape. All of our group exercise classes, aerobics and spin too, are included in a circuit or full-access membership.

We welcome Diane Meyrick back as our yoga instructor. Her class is offered on Thursday evening at 4:30. Her classes require a small registration fee, with a discounted price if you have a membership. We invite you to experience the benefits of yoga.


It is volleyball time! Anyone high school age and up is eligible to participate. Get your friends together for this co-ed sport. Pick up your roster and get it turned in by Sept. 16. We will play on Tuesday evenings beginning Oct. 7. The fall session will cover approximately 10 weeks. This is a fun and competitive league that offers an awesome workout.

For the past 39 years the Lincoln Park District has sponsored the Linpro dancers, who meet regularly on the first and third Saturday of each month. Couples of all ages are welcome to square dance and round dance (ballroom steps done to cues). Spectators are welcome to attend. This fun-filled activity stimulates the body as well as the mind. Dance instruction is given several times each year. Contact Ron at 217-732-6387 for information about the next dance class. Fun is guaranteed.

Dog obedience will be on the schedule for October. We encourage all pet owners to bring their dogs and benefit from the professional instructor. As we move indoors, so do our pets, and this is a perfect time to address behavior issues before they become a serious problem. We'll be giving you more information as time gets closer.
