Hunters Woods Basin Restoration Project

On February 27, 2017, the Naperville Park District hosted a public open house event at the Naper Boulevard Library to showcase plans for the Hunters Woods Basin Restoration project.  As relayed during the event, residents may begin seeing pre-construction activities including project equipment mobilization and staking onsite as early as late March/early April. 

The project consists of removal of sediment from the park’s pond (retention basin), which has filled with material over approximately 30 years.  In addition to sediment removal, the work involves excavation of an eight foot deep channel between the basin inlet and outlet locations, adjacent to residential properties along the south side of the park.  As part of the project, contractors will install three aerators, regrade and reseed the pond’s shoreline with a native plant mixture, and store the sediment material excavated from the basin in stockpiles in the northern portion of the park.  After the drainage process planned for late summer/early fall (weather dependent), the sediment will be sculpted into vegetated berms located west of the existing playground area.

If there is an interest in further project information, please contact Eric Shutes, Director of Planning, at
