Park District Releases 2017 Community Survey Results

The results of the Naperville Park District’s 2017 Community Interest and Opinion Survey are now available online at

Jeff Andreasen, President of aQuity Research & Insights, Inc. conducted the survey on behalf of the Park District in April and May 2017. A sample of 512 residents from all geographic areas of Naperville responded either online, by telephone or by mailed questionnaire.

Consistent with findings of the 2012 Community Interest and Opinion Survey, respondents gave the Park District high esteem ratings (79% favorable) and rated the Park District high in value relative to its share of property taxes (79% positive). Virtually all respondents (95%) reported visiting a park in the past year, with 92% using the Riverwalk. Those who visited Naperville Park District parks or facilities expressed high satisfaction with their experience (8.3 on a scale of 1-10) and with the upkeep of the parks and facilities (8.4 on a scale of 1-10).

Once again, residents ranked trails as the most used and desired outdoor recreational amenity, and rated fitness and walk/jog tracks as the top indoor facilities.

“The survey results affirm that the Park District provides parks and services that are highly valued by the majority of our residents,” said Executive Director Ray McGury. “Staff and commissioners will look at the results in detail as the District updates its strategic plan for the next three years. We thank everyone who took the time to respond to the survey.“
