Work on the Inline Skating Rinks at Commissioners Park and DuPage River Sports Complex to Proceed this Spring

This spring, Naperville Park District will install a modular tile system on the inline skate rinks at both Commissioners Park, located at 3704 111th Street, and at DuPage River Sports Complex, located at 2807 S. Washington Street. Additionally, the inline rink at DuPage River Sports Complex is in need of renovation, which will include replacing the underlying concrete surface prior to installing the new tile system.

The renovation work at DuPage River Sports Complex is set to begin the week of April 20, with the goal of completing the project by the end of May. The installation at Commissioners Park will require less time, as the existing concrete surface can be used for the new tile. Installation will begin in May when the weather warms sufficiently to allow for surface preparation.

“We are proceeding with both projects as soon as possible, while park amenities are still closed,” explained Project Manager Mike Piszynski. “The goal is to have both inline rinks open for play by the end of May. Depending on the weather, the rink at Commissioners Park may be completed earlier than that.”

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.
