A unique community asset with exceptional programming and special events. We have viewed award winning contemporary as well as classic films in the recently opened state-of-the-art Hughes Theater. Our family has used the Gorton Drop In Center for flexible and educational childcare throughout the week with a dedicated and specialized staff. We have enjoyed special child programming such as Safety Town and childrens camps. Gorton also offers yoga, cooking, computing, music, language classes for old and young. A true gem.

Gorton Community Center provides a unique place for the Lake Forest & Lake Bluff community to gather. It operates very efficiently with a small, dedicated and talented staff. Governance is excellent; the Board is quite involved and generous with time, treasure and talent.

It's a special thing to have the opportunity to nurture the connectivity of a community. Gorton represents that special place in our community with the opportunity to both reach and impact all ages. It's a model for communities nationally. We are blessed.
