Naperville July 4 Fireworks Display to Take Place at Frontier Sports Complex

The City of Naperville, Naperville Park District and The Salute event organizers Naperville Responds For Veterans issued the following statement regarding the 2020 July 4 fireworks display:

 

“Due to the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19, representatives from the City of Naperville, Naperville Park District, and Naperville Responds For Veterans have together concluded that Frontier Sports Complex, located at 3380 Cedar Glade Drive, is best suited to offer a socially responsible July 4 fireworks event. The health and safety of our audience is our highest priority, and the decision to temporarily change the location from Knoch Park to Frontier Sports Complex this year was made to ensure that we are doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to residents and visitors who come to enjoy this annual tradition.

 

“We know many were hoping for a fireworks display at Knoch Park. Despite the disappointment this decision may bring to some, we are grateful to have found a location that allows us to continue this tradition while ensuring the safety of all participants. We look forward to The Salute’s return to Rotary Hill in 2021 and along with it, the fireworks display.”

 

The fireworks display will take place from 9:30 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 4, at Frontier Sports Complex. Those interested in attending in person can watch from a field within the park or from their vehicles in one of the 906 parking spaces at the complex. An additional 1,000 parking spaces will also be available at Neuqua Valley High School, 3380 Cedar Glade Drive. Spectators are encouraged to practice social distancing at all times. For those wishing to watch the show from home, NCTV17 will be providing a live broadcast of the event.

 

More information about the NCTV17 event broadcast and maps of available parking and safe viewing locations will be posted at www.naperville.il.us/eventinfo the week before the event.

Funds raised through the Naperville Parks Foundation support the Naperville Park District’s Fee Assistance Program. The Naperville Parks Foundation supports the recreation needs and desires of the residents of Naperville – encouraging health and wellness, fitness, family time, and fun. The Foundation supports the mission of making recreation of all kinds accessible to everyone across the community, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 Naperville Park District officials heard the good news for which they have been waiting for many months: the District has achieved national accreditation through the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

The decision was announced at the NRPA national conference in Atlanta following a formal hearing before the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA).

Naperville is only the second park district in Illinois to earn this distinction and the 104th nationally accredited agency in the nation; there are more than 10,000 recreation agencies in the United States. The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies accredits a handful of park agencies each year that have completed a multi-step process involving a self-review by the agency, a site visit, and an evaluation and formal report by the Commission.

“We are extremely proud to bring this honor to Naperville,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury. “It’s an affirmation of our high standards and also an encouragement to continue bringing high quality recreation and parks experiences to our community.”

The Park District’s accreditation process began approximately one year ago and included an extensive self-evaluation by staff and a 5-day visit from CAPRA reviewers this past July. Maintaining the accreditation requires annual reports and 5- and 10-year reviews.

Park District staff members noted that the CAPRA process has helped them see the big picture, focus on long term goals and plans, review plans more regularly, organize documents so that they are accessible and useable, and collaborate more effectively with other departments and outside organizations.
