Consider this. Has anyone ever given you more than you asked for? Well, it’s happening! Beginning January 1, 2022, we are excited to be able to expand the support you receive as a member of the RiverPlex family. We’re thrilled to share a new partnership that will give you more…. More friends to cheer you on. More options for exercise. More flexibility to support your personal fitness goals.
On New Year’s Day, the Peoria Park District will join forces with the Greater Peoria YMCA to offer dual memberships, which means simply that members from each facility will be able to access fitness programming and equipment, including pools(!), at BOTH facilities at no additional costs! Andy and I, and our leadership teams and boards, all believe this is a great way to show our support for health and vibrancy in our community and serve our members better in the process. With shared goals around support of our Peoria area region, this collaboration is a great way to get people up and active all year round!
Our RiverPlex team is also pleased to share that one thing isn’t changing…. The groundbreaking relationship that built the RiverPlex between the District and OSF is alive and well. OSF patients will still use the region’s leading fitness facility for rehab and our teams will continue to work to support each other and you.
The proposed dual member agreement will be presented to the Peoria Park District’s board of trustees for official approval next Wednesday, November 17 at 6pm. We hope you’ll tune in to learn more, but in the meantime, please see below for some Q &A that will hopefully answer many of the questions that you have. If you’d like to know more, there’s an answer for that too!
As we progress through this transition, we’ll be sharing regular updates about Member Open Houses and special programming to get you ready to access MORE in the new year and we can’t wait to celebrate this opportunity with you.
In the meantime, keep exercising and know that we’re grateful for you and your membership in the RiverPlex family.
