Activity Center Development

The Fort Hill Activity Center is being developed in what has become known as an “athletic corridor” on Quincy Avenue and Fort Hill Drive where other athletic related facilities are located. The area is bounded by Ogden Avenue to the east and Fort Hill Drive to the west.  The Activity Center will serve as a community gathering place for all ages and abilities to enjoy a wide range of indoor recreation activities, sports, and fitness and wellness programs.

The Fort Hill Activity Center is being developed to:

    • Provide additional indoor space in order to better serve the year-round recreation needs of the community and more effectively address community health and wellness issues – one of the District’s core values.
    • Address programming needs for Naperville residents with special needs.
    • Better serve the needs of the senior community by providing amenities that encourage physical activity and making meaningful social connections
    • Serve the needs of the changing demographics of the Naperville community

Several years of Community Interest and Opinion Survey results, in addition to resident feedback from open houses and focus groups was utilized to develop the major recreational amenities included in the facility.  Building floor plans can be found at the links below.  The Fort Hill Activity Center will be 79,575 square feet in size and includes a fitness area, multipurpose rooms, café, indoor playground, childcare room, gymnastics room, walk/jog track, wood floor studios, locker rooms and a gymnasium with up to 4 youth basketball courts, 4 volleyball courts and 6 courts that can be used for pickleball or badminton.  The Fort Hill Activity Center is anticipated to be complete by fall 2016.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When will the Fort Hill Activity Center Open?
The project is anticipated to be complete by fall 2016.

How much will it cost to construct the Activity Center?
The budget for the project is $24,120,000 including the design and construction phases of the entire project.

How is the District funding the Fort Hill Activity Center?
Current revenue sources including land/cash donations, tax revenue, investments and alternative revenue like grants are being used. Additionally, the District reprioritized its capital projects to be able to build a project of this kind and address the most critical need that the District faces. The Activity Center was planned and is being constructed in a way that is consistent with the District’s other projects that have illustrated exceptional financial stewardship such as Nike Sports Complex, the Seager Park Interpretive Center and the Centennial Beach renovation – all of which came in on time and under budget.

Will residents’ taxes increase?
Taxes will increase regardless of the Activity Center. This is due to the increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and the capital needs of the District including the need to fund amenities to accommodate residents with special needs per the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Residents can expect to see a very modest increase of approximately $8-10 for the year for the average homeowner which equates to paying for approximately three gallons of gasoline for your car.

Will there be a cost to use the Fort Hill Activity Center?
Portions of the Activity Center, such as the fitness area, open gyms, childcare and peak times for the walk/jog track will require the purchase of a membership or payment of a daily use fee.  Non-peak walk/jog track times and various activities held at the Activity Center will be free to residents.  Similar to other Park District offerings, the programs at the Activity Center will be a mix of both free and fee based offerings.

How much will it cost to use the Fort Hill Activity Center?
The Naperville Park District is in the process of developing it’s 2016 budget.  Fees for programs and events that require paid admission or registration to participate will be finalized as part of the budget process.

The Fort Hill Activity Center website will be updated as the construction of the facility progresses.  Please check back in the future for project updates.
