This is a fantastic facility! They have a family pool and a competition pool and both are well maintained. The basketball courts are beautiful! The fitness area is full of up to date, well kept equ...ipment. The trainers are all VERY friendly. They have TONS of programs for all ages. You can even host events such as pool parties or wedding showers here! If you are looking to play some basketball, get in shape, or learn a new hobby, or host an event, this is the place to be!

I brought my granddaughter there yesterday 9/8/2017 for her SSAT exam the facility is very well maintained from what I could see, all though it is a paid membership facility it is very inconvenient wh...en a outside group rents a room and told you cannot use the bathroom or purchase items from the concession stand . I looked into this facility and was told it was built to be a community center but I've never been or heard of a community center that you had to pay to be a member. So if it is a community center then it should be free to all community residents and if a outside group rent space they should be allowed to use restrooms and purchase items from concession stand.

Completely awful, hosted a football game and one potty, this place won't even let the team playing here have a concession stand, and they are quite the distance to walk for concessions! Ridiculous! Sh...ameful to see Salvation Army on the building name! Our team was a guest here! See More

I attended a kids swimming party. The facility itself is very nice. There are so many things to do. The lifeguards were a little rude. The pizza was HORRIBLE!! But outside of those two things, it was overall good experience. The children enjoyed themselves tremendously See More

I brought my grandson here for baseball practice and loved the facility nice,clean, plenty of space for all types of sports and events. The employees are very nice and friendly the swimming pool is r...eally nice . The food served there was also good and a very clean environment.
We need more facilities like this all over the city to have a place where especially our young people can
come work out and learn cultivating activities. I would definitely love to go back and do the swimming aerobics.

Was a member a few years ago , they apparently hire off duty police officers as security , it was winter I entered the facility and before I could get in the door good officer Ray rush me and told me take off my hat I was caught off guard so I didn't say anything and just removed my hat , after my workout I spoke with him and said he could have let me get in the door good and give me the opportunity to remove my hat , he said to me "you're a Man and a Man should know to remove his hat when he enters a room " there were many implications in his tone , I was beyond offended ,,, I remember his name because when I asked someone else what his name is , he heard me and got in my face and in a very aggressive manner told me clearly
" MY NAME IS RAY!!! OFFICER RAY !!! " I felt threatened , there is nothing about me that should have caused that kind of in your face reaction from officer Ray .
I spoke with someone that said they were management but didn't seemed concerned , didn't return after that , the whole ordeal was unprofessional .
BTW I grew going to the Salvation Army Brainerd Corps as a child what I know about truth and fairness comes from a combination of my Mom and the church , I use to love going to camp Wonderland every summer , it's a shame that do to poor management and a poorly trained officer ,,, anyone would have a negative experience like the one I encountered .

More than I can describe. My husband and I talked about it as we walked on the field/walking trail thanking the Kroc's for putting this great place on the south side of Chicago! The near surburban p...eople can come and enjoy it as well. There's the outside and the inside, something/activities for the very young to the very old. It is well maintained, which is very important! I give it a superior rating. See More
