Harmony Park Ribbon Cutting

The Naperville Riverwalk is about to get a little more musical. Rotary Harmony Park opened up to the public on Saturday after a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Located next to Rotary Hill, the park features four outdoor musical instruments that anyone is free to test out. Leaders from the Rotary Club of Naperville, the Riverwalk Commission, Naperville Park District, Century Walk Commission, and the City of Naperville came together to make the project happen and hope it will drum up some good vibrations on the Riverwalk.

 

Tobacco Compliance Check

The Naperville Police Department performed tobacco/alternative nicotine product compliance checks at 76 Naperville businesses. Ogden Wine and Spirit and Vape 58 were the only two businesses who failed the checks by selling tobacco or alternative nicotine products to a person under 21 years old. One was cited for the offense while the other received a warning.
