The Fusion Recplex was built in coordination with a grant from the State of Illinois “Parks and Recreation Facility Construction Grant Program Illinois Department of Natural Resources”. It was completed and opened on September 7th, 2013. The facility serves Burbank residents and the surrounding communities. It has become the home for the Burbank Park Districts Administration offices, as well as a number of its programs. The addition of the Fusion Recplex has allowed the Park District to improve the quality of its programs and has aided in the revamping of its own infrastructure. Five additional Full-time staff members were added to help run the Fusion Recplex as well as help to better serve the Burbank residents. The park district also took this opportunity to update its IT components providing a faster, easier way to give access to its services to the public.
Among its many amenities, the Fusion Recplex has a full-sized basketball court that can be used for volleyball, indoor floor sports, and rented out for a variety of other uses, such as birthday party bouncy houses and lazer tag!
The building boasts a 4,000+ square foot fitness center, 1/16 mile walking track, locker rooms with showers and steam rooms, two 1,000 square foot multipurpose rooms, a 2,000 square foot aerobics room that doubles as a rentable space and a kid’s zone. The facility has eighteen 32” flat screen TVs mounted around the building as well as free Wi-Fi. The Fusion Recplex sells yearly memberships as well as day passes for anyone that wants to enjoy its classes and fitness center. The facility is located 6100 W. 85th St. and is built next to the Burbank Water Park, which is open seasonally.
