In Phase 4 of Restore Illinois gymnasiums are allowed to be open unfortunately actual basketball games/scrimmages are not allowed.

At 14,000 sq. ft., the gymnasium is the largest single room in The Kroc Center.

The gymnasium was designed specifically to be used for a variety of sports, activities, and events. Looking for a way to get in some fun cardio? Gather some friends or family members and check out a basketball during open gym hours. Or ask a group who is already playing if  you can join in on the game.

• The perimeter above of the gymnasium is surrounded by a 3-lane, rubberized walking/running track. In addition to getting to watch various leagues and games, the track also offers a spectacular view of the Mississippi river and the city blocks around the facility.

*Additional shoe or rental charges may apply. Signed waivers are required.

We are working through options to address these concerns so we can open the Rock Wall as soon as possible. We do apologize for this inconvenience.
