Upcoming Improvements/Construction

Pond Dredging and Shoreline Restoration Project

Project Background.  Silt has filled the retention pond over the years, degrading the water quality and the pond’s capacity to hold stormwater and prevent flooding. The invasive trees that have grown and spread along the pond’s shoreline do not hold soil in place, rather, they allow for the erosion of soil into the pond. 

Project Description and Timeline. Naperville Park District is partnering with DuPage County Stormwater Management Department and its contractors to restore the pond and its shoreline. Phase 1 of the project is to remove the invasive and declining trees along the shoreline. This work is planned for winter 2023/2024. Phase 2 of the project is to be  performed by the Park District’s contractor. It will involve  removing the silt that has filled the retention pond over the years. Phase 3 is to stabilize the slopes of the shoreline and plant native vegetation to prevent erosion in the future. The Park District installed new trees throughout the park in the past and in 2023 in anticipation of this work. Phases 2 and 3 are planned to begin in 2024.
