Following the winter holidays, Naperville residents can look forward to a tempting menu of fun, educational, and healthy activities offered by the Naperville Park District in the newly renovated Fry Property Building at 2244 West 95th Street in south Naperville.

At their October 11, 2012 regular meeting, the Naperville Park District Board of Commissioners formally named the new recreation space the 95th Street Center.  The District holds a three-year lease for 11,500 square feet of indoor programming space at the Center. The leased space includes:

 - Wood floor studio for dance and group fitness programs
 - Two, multi-purpose classrooms
 - Two classrooms for arts and crafts and lecture programs
 - Culinary kitchen with instructor teaching station and six fully-equipped participant kitchens
 - Lounge/waiting area with free Wi-Fi
 - Full-service customer service office

“Our recreation staff is excited to be able to offer a full range of programs for all ages at this south side location,” said Director of Recreation Brad Wilson. “Beginning in January, residents and nonresidents can participate in new sewing and cooking classes, dance classes, yoga, Pilates, gymnastics, arts and crafts, computer explorers, knitting, weight loss classes, and much more.”

“The teaching kitchen setup is unique in Naperville, with six teaching stations in one room,” said Program Manager Sandie Gilmer. “Class participants will be able to practice what the instructor is teaching while the demonstration is taking place,” she said.  The culinary space also will be available for rentals by families and small groups for personal use.

Following the completion of building renovations in November, the Naperville Park District will move furniture and equipment into the space.
