What is Five Points Washington? It depends on who you ask, and that’s exactly what its founders had in mind.

It’s a place for athletes of all ages, with a state-of-the-art fitness facility, gymnasium and aquatics center. It’s a place for healing with a physical therapy program and recovery services offered in massage and stretching. It’s a place for entertainment, with a 1,000-seat performing arts center that hosts symphonies and band concerts, dance competitions and musicals. It’s a place where students can experience a professional theater for the first time and grow into competitive athletes through fitness and aquatics programming.

Through partnership with the Washington Community Library, Five Points is a place for education for all ages. It’s a community gathering place — where boards, committees and councils conduct business and address challenges, residents gather to celebrate milestones, and the community unites to recognize achievements and strengthen connections.

Five Points was created through the collaborative efforts of five individual organizations, each with a community-focused mission. By uniting their offerings under the same roof, they created a destination unlike any other — providing dozens of one-of-a-kind opportunities for individuals while working together to make Central Illinois a better place to live.
