Congratulations to the Naperville Park District for setting the standard for excellence. After a yearlong process, they recently completed the final step to be nationally accredited. This is the first time officials have sought and received this honor. This is a highly coveted achievement since the award is given to less than one percent of park districts in the United States.
“It gives us additional credibility in the community and provides us the impetus to continue to excel and continue to provide the kind of recreation and park facilities that the residents expect,” said Sameera Luthman, Director of Marketing and Communications for the Naperville Park District.
Park officials must now come up with a five and ten year plan to make sure they are fulfilling necessary requirements.
Naperville is the second park district in Illinois to achieve the designation, the first, Oak Lawn Park District.
