You may have to wait a little longer to enjoy fun in the sun through the Naperville Park District.
Unseasonably cold temperatures and recent snowfall have led to water collecting on the frozen ground, forcing many of the parks to remain closed for an additional week as they wait for the ground to dry.
Parks and fields typically open in early to mid March depending on the weather, but this year park district officials have decided to keep them closed a bit longer.
That means soccer programs and other outdoor clubs have been pushed back a week or have relocated practices.
However, it isn’t all bad news for the Park District, golf courses were recently opened, and another sport is enjoying some extra attention.
“Our ice skating season has been able to run longer than we usually l anticipate, so its great in that regard. Weather is something that impacts us a lot as a park district but you learn to deal with it,” said the Park District’s Director of Recreation, Brad Wilson.
