Located at 180 Anets Drive in beautiful Techny Prairie Park and Fields overlooking Anetsberger Golf Course and the surrounding prairie, the Northbrook Park District’s newest facility is slated to open in January 2021.

The state-of-the art 44,200 square foot Techny Prairie Activity Center provides two group exercise studios, an indoor track, gymnasium, Kids’ Corner childcare and the Prairie Room is available for rentals. The 6,000 square-foot fitness floor houses a cardio area featuring 12 treadmills, six ellipticals, three climbmills, two adaptive motion trainers, three recumbent bikes, three upright cycles, a recumbent cross trainer and SciFit upper body.
