Leonhard Recreation Center opened to the public in 2014 and was funded in part by the Park and Recreational Facility Construction Grant Program, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, with additional geothermal mechanical system funding provided by The Illinois Clean Energy Foundation. The energy efficient geothermal system transfers heat by pumping water through pipes below the Earth’s surface. During the winter, the piped water absorbs underground warmth and brings heat to the building. In the summer, it is reversed for air conditioning!
