Knoch Knolls Nature Center to Reopen July 17

Naperville Park District plans to reopen Knoch Knolls Nature Center for public, drop-in visits on Friday and Saturday mornings beginning Friday, July 17. Some restrictions and guidelines for facility visitors are in place and are listed online at

 “We are happy to welcome visitors back to the Nature Center,” said Nature Center Manager Angelique Harshman. “Families now can plan to stop by during our public hours and view the exhibits including the aquarium, live animal exhibits and educational signage.”

During Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, a maximum of 10 people at a time may enter the exhibit area and face coverings are required at all times while inside the Nature Center. Visitors are asked to stay 6 feet from others while inside the facility and conduct a self-assessment prior to arriving at the Nature Center and not visit if exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19.

Knoch Knolls Park is open from sunrise to one hour after sunset, with five and a half miles of trails, outdoor educational signs, parking and restrooms (accessible only from the outdoor entrance). Three mobile tours are available by calling 630-315-9156; data charges may apply. The playground is open but limited to 50 persons at one time and the 18-hole disc golf course is open during regular park hours.
