The park district boasts amenities like Sunset Valley Golf Course, Centennial Ice Arena, Heller Nature Center, Rosewood Beach and more.  Pamper your taste buds with the assorted flavors of Lake County libations at Ravinia Brewing Company. The Highland Park brewpub also features delectable eats from visiting food trucks.
