Winthrop Harbor is a family-friendly community with several beautiful parks and plenty of recreation activities!  Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all residents and visitors with safe, accessible, and affordable parks and recreation programs and facilities.

The Schlader Recreation Center is the hub of activities for the Village, with over 20,000 square feet of indoor space available for year-round activities. Located at Village Park on 9th Street, the Schlader Recreation Center includes ample parking for events of all types.  Village Park also boosts plenty of open space for family get-togethers, picnics, and more.  A beautiful covered Gazebo is nestled beside the pond, with two additional covered shelters near the main play-park area.  Several baseball/softball diamonds are available along with tennis, basketball courts and a Skate park.

The Winthrop Harbor Parks and Recreation Department hosts various events and activities throughout the year and strives to meet a wide range of ages, interests, and activity levels.
