About Us

Lakeview Fitness is a ten year old fitness facility, formerly a YMCA, that was purchased by the Vernon Hills Park District. In 2013, the District upgraded the facility with interior renovations to transform its amenities and appearance into current trends. The Vernon Hills Park District was selected as recipient of a Park and Recreational Facility Construction Program Grant (PARC) for the renovation of Lakeview Fitness in 2022. The District was awarded a PARC Grant of $2,247,700 to renovate the existing facility by adding more workout and office space, increasing the interior pool, upgrading the locker rooms, and creating an outdoor fitness studio.
