About Us

Owned and operated by Pekin Park District, Parkside Fitness opened in 1975 and was originally named “The Court House” since it had four indoor tennis courts, locker rooms, a lounge for players, and two other smaller areas for fitness programs. Over the years, Parkside Fitness has grown to include 55,000 square feet of high-caliber fitness amenities including racquetball courts, expanded fitness equipment, and added group fitness and personal training programs. The friendly staff at Parkside Fitness is dedicated to helping you achieve your health and fitness goals. Please stop in for a tour today or check out our membership options here.
