The Naperville Park District recently held the groundbreaking ceremony for their new Activity Center.
Located at the corner of Fort Hill Drive and Quincy Avenue, the nearly 800,000 square foot center will be for all Naperville residents, with an emphasis on senior citizens and those with special needs.
“As a Park District we are please to finally be able to provide this long awaited facility for the community and we look forward to its completion with anticipation,” said Mike Reilly, Park Board President.
Along with lots of space for year round physical activity, the complex will include a childcare area and cafe.
The nearly $23 million project was originally slated to be funded in part by a $2.5 million PARC Grant from the state. After cuts by Governor Rauner, that grant was suspended. But the project was able to move forward through the reallocation of capital funds, taxes, other grants and donations.
You can start planning your trips to the Activity Center beginning in the Fall of 2016.
