Aquatic Center

The Aquatic Center is our state-of-the-art, 20,000 square-foot glass-enclosed facility providing beneficial year-round therapy and social relaxation. The facility consists of both a 25′ x 60′ lap/aerobics pool and a 25′ x 35′ warm-water therapy pool. The therapy pool provides easy access for residents of all levels of care by utilizing a wheelchair ramp, hydro-jet benches, a chair lift, and safety railings.

The Aquatic Center offers lap swimming, warm-water aquatic therapy and water aerobics classes on many levels.

Fitness and Aerobics Rooms

Our fitness room features user-friendly, state-of-the-art equipment and one-on-one training consultation. A mirrored aerobics room hosts classes in yoga, tai chi, stretch and tone, Pilates, and dance. Weekly guided hikes are a popular outdoor activity.

Outdoor Fitness Stations

The Outdoor Fitness Park was installed in 2016 and includes four exercise stations designed by Greenfields Outdoor Fitness.

Croquet Court

Below our Aquatic Center, Deerfield is fortunate to have a regulation six wicket, artificial turf croquet court. We are home to an active, 75+ member Croquet Club, open to all residents, and sanctioned by the U.S. Croquet Association. The club hosts two tournaments a year. In 2001, a generous donation from a resident enabled Deerfield to construct the croquet court. Buzz Lee was a leading player in the U.S. Croquet Association and brought his passion for the game to Deerfield, where our court is named in his honor. The all-weather, year-round court was completely refurbished in 2015 to tournament standards.

“We love everything about Deerfield. It brings peace to our children that they do not have to worry about us. So many things to do and great people!”
