Update: Winding Creek Park Basketball Court

Residents in the Winding Creek Park area requested the Naperville Park District to consider adding basketball courts at Winding Creek Park.  In summer 2023, Park District staff gathered community input pertaining to the proposal as part of the Capital Projects Open House event and meetings with residents at Winding Creek Park.  

Staff evaluated the input received and presented the findings during the October 12, 2023 Parks and Recreation Committee meeting.  Following the presentation by staff and public comment, the Parks and Recreation Committee expressed support for the approach of including the installation of one (1) basketball court with a circular layout to accommodate three basketball hoops at Winding Creek Park in the 2024 Capital Budget.

Upcoming Improvements/Construction

Capital Project
Winding Creek Park - Playground Renovation and Basketball Court Development
The Park District plans to renovate the playground at Winding Creek Park in 2024 and per resident requests, the Park District also plans to consider a basketball court development in 2024. 

Residents participated in an online survey to help select the new play equipment. Click here: Winding Creek_Little Tikes  to view the proposed equipment.

Construction for the playground renovation is scheduled to begin in early-mid July and anticipated to be complete in mid-late September. Construction for the basketball court development is scheduled to take place this summer. More details will be available following City of Naperville permit approval.

Please note 2 trees on the north side of the playground are scheduled to be removed this spring, prior to the start of the playground renovation this summer. The overall health was evaluated, and it was determined they are in poor condition. Additionally, the condition of the hardwood trunks was determined to be in poor condition.
