At the base of the Riverwalk's Rotary Hill stands the majestic Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower, a unique, 16-story structure with a 72- bell musical instrument. This gift, given to the Naperville community to commemorate the dawn of the New Millennium, was built through community support and donations, and is maintained through a partnership between the Naperville Park District, Millennium Carillon Foundation and the City of Naperville.

Visitors can climb the 253 steps to the top of the tower on the guided tour and enjoy the spectacular view, where on a clear day the Chicago Skyline can be seen. Those who are unable to climb the stairs are encouraged to use the elevator and remain on the Gallery Level Observation Deck.

2024 Millennium Carillon Lighting Program
The Park District offers a special lighting program at the Millennium Carillon designed to create an opportunity to promote, celebrate or commemorate non-profit or non-commercial community activities, events, subjects or organizations that the Park Board of Commissioners determines to be consistent with the organization’s mission. Carillon light colors can be changed to align with specific, approved events and purposes. Neither the Carillon nor the lighting program constitutes a public forum for speech. The lighting program is intended to celebrate community events and holidays and to bring awareness to events or matters that are of local importance and beyond. 

June
In recognition of Juneteenth, the Millennium Carillon will be lit from June 14-June 19 with the colors red, green, and yellow.

For more information about the lighting program, please contact Andrea Coates, Director of Recreation, at acoates@napervilleparks.org
