Pradel Honored with Garden

A local restaurant honors our Mayor Emeritus in a fresh new way.

When owner of Meson Sabika, Hossien Jamali decided to redesign a flower garden on the restaurant grounds, he saw an opportunity to create a special tribute to A. George Pradel, one of their biggest supporters.

That’s why the east garden has been officially named the Pradel Garden.

“I have the highest regard for him, he served our country as a marine then our city as a police officer and then mayor. Service and serving Naperville is all he has in his heart and I think all of Naperville is grateful for that,” said Jamali.

A plaque now marks the spot that is typically used for wedding ceremonies.
