The Pavilion cultivates every species of physical activity within its 66,000-square-foot indoor complex and adjacent outdoor fields. The eclectic indoor space hosts soccer, volleyball, and curling face-offs, as well as a year-round ice-skating facility, bounce house, and inline-skating space. Fledgling ice skaters slip and slide during public skating sessions or take part in the U.S. Figure Skating Association's basic skills program to grease their triple axels. As the temperature rises, members make a mad dash outdoors to one of six tennis courts and three soccer fields, or hail a ride on George, The Pavilion's historic miniature passenger train. The complex's Boundless Playground offers a space where children with disabilities can be included in play thanks to accessible slides, swings, and climbing structures.

Six and Twenty Distillery gets its name from a love story. During the Revolutionary War, a Choctaw woman who lived in a nearby village overheard plans for an attack on the trading post where her British sweetheart lived. As she traveled 96 miles by pony to warn him, she named geographical points based on the distance from her home village. Six and Twenty Distillery is located approximately 26 miles from the start of her trip. Owners Robert and David decided to pay homage to this courageous woman?who saved her lover and married him soon after her adventure?by naming their distillery for her. Using a hybrid still, today they craft smooth, sweet whiskeys with wheat instead of corn, boxing up each batch by hand.
