OUR BEAUTIFUL PARKS AND OPEN SPACE
In 1966, residents voted to create the Naperville Park District—separate from the City of Naperville—to support parks and recreation with its own funding and elected board of commissioners. Since that time, the Park District has grown along with the City, acquiring land and planning for the future, so that now, as a community of nearly 150,000 people, we can enjoy 136 parks and 75 playgrounds across 2,400+ acres of land , many unique facilities, and more than 7,500 classes, teams, events and performances annually. The Park District also offers many unique free events throughout the year.

Park and Facilities Overview
Seasonal Prescribed Burns Each spring and fall, the Park District uses controlled ground-level burns as an effective tool to clear the ground of invasive weeds and reduce the amount of leaf and plant debris with the goal of returning nutrients to the soil and trigger native plant germination. Residents may see smoke or even fire when these activities are occurring. Nearby residents receive notification via post card and the media is notified by press release prior to the start of prescribed burn season. Information regarding prescribed burns and locations can be found at napervilleparks.org/ prescribedburns.
Wolf’s Crossing Community Park
Residents may rent parks or facilities for private events. For details and rental application form, visit napervilleparks.org/rentals. Naperville has miles and miles of trails that safely connect residents
to places across the community via walking or biking. Please note that biking is not allowed on the Naperville Riverwalk. A great resource regarding places to bike
and hike can be found on the City of Naperville’s website: naperville.il.us/enjoy-naperville/biking- maps-guides-and-plans.
