The 11,000 square foot facility is located in Jewett Park, near the corner of Deerfield and Waukegan Roads. It is geared to the more experienced athlete. Hours at this unsupervised facility are dawn to dusk. There is no charge to use the facility. Safety equipment is encouraged. Helmets are required for all skaters under 16 years of age.
Your children will love the Treehouse on the upper level of the Jewett Park Community Center. The kids will enjoy the eight foot tube slide, mountain climb, spring walk, web crawl and double cush-n-cube bags, not to mention other intriguing attractions to stimulate young imaginations. Children like to jump and climb, pretend and be challenged. The Treehouse provides all those opportunities to children who are at least three years old and less than 4-feet tall.
