Dear Naperville Resident,

Thank you for your interest in the future development of Southwest Community Park. I am writing with an update following the invitation we sent you to take the most recent online survey.

We heard from some residents who do not want anything built at Southwest Community Park and from others who think indoor recreation space or a pool is not needed.  They only wanted to provide their feedback without ranking the proposed project amenities, which were identified by Naperville residents earlier via the March 1 public meeting and through stakeholder workshops, email comments and a previous survey. However, the most recent survey was not able to capture input in that way.

Taking into consideration the comments from individuals who prefer not to rank the proposed project amenities, we are offering the option of emailing me your comments at any time at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We want to hear from all sides and maintain 100% transparency and openness in this process.

The next step for the Park District is to refine the draft site master plan based on additional resident input and to bring the plan to the board of commissioners for discussion at a special board meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 14 at the Naperville Municipal Center, located at 400 S. Eagle Street. You are welcome to attend and sign up to comment at the meeting.

We look forward to working with you to provide what the community needs and wants at Southwest Community Park.

Sincerely,

Ray McGury

Executive Director
Naperville Park District


Special Meeting June 14, 2018

During the June 14, 2018 Special Meeting, the Board of Commissioners directed staff to formulate and present funding options to support the implementation of the Southwest Community Park Site Master Plan Phase I at the June 28 workshop. In addition, the Board of Commissioner asked staff to secure an engineering proposal necessary to proceed with Phase I for consideration. A more defined timeline and development schedule is expected to be ready once a funding plan is confirmed by the Park District.

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.
