Indian Ridge Park is located adjacent to the Leisure Center which is home to the Senior Center, Northbrook Theatre, general programming and Sunshine Preschool. The park is used for a variety of passive and active recreation including: Bocce Ball, Safety Town, softball and basketball games, soccer, and playground.

Indian Ridge Park is an available location for our Tree and Bench Donation Program. Bench donations either replace an aging bench or add a bench to open space, a bronze donor recognition plaque will be attached to the seatback of the bench. A tree donation includes the installation of a 2‐3 inch‐diameter tree and an engraved brass leaf, mounted on a donation wall at the Northbrook Leisure Center. For more information, you can check out the Tree and Bench Donation Program page.


Prior to 1984, the building on the site used to serve as the Indian Ridge School. With enrollment in District 27 schools declining, the School Board decided to close the school and sell the property. On March 21, 1984, Park District residents approved a referendum to purchase the former elementary school and surrounding grounds for $1.2 million. The Park District named the building the Northbrook Leisure Center and made improvements to the site, which became a center of recreational programming. As Performing Arts programs increased, the District added a theater in 1986 at a cost of $700,000. The Leisure Center was renovated in 1992-93, and the Senior Center moved there from the Village Green in 1993.
