Winter Sports, Snow Clearing and Activity Guidelines


Winter Weather

Snow and ice are common causes for winter program cancellations and facility closures, however, cold temperatures is another factor that is considered during the winter season. The Naperville Park District uses the following guidelines and procedures in the determination of winter weather cancellations and closures.

Programs & Facilities

The cancellation of Park District programs or closure of facilities will be dependent upon weather conditions and facility accessibility. The Park District will monitor weather conditions and facility accessibility to determine if Park District programs will meet or facilities will remain open. Program cancellations and facility closures due to winter weather will be posted at: www.napervilleparks.org/cancellations.

Preschool

If either Naperville Community Unit School District 203 or Indian Prairie School District 204 is closed to in-person learning due to winter weather, all Naperville Park District in-person preschool programs will be cancelled for the day. Preschool cancellations due to winter weather will be posted at: www.napervilleparks.org/cancellations.

Cold Temperatures

Outdoor activities may be modified or cancelled by the Naperville Park District due to cold temperatures. Participants in programs that meet outdoors during cold temperatures should wear:

  • a hat
  • a scarf or knit mask to cover face and mouth
  • sleeves that are snug at the wrist
  • mittens (they are warmer than gloves)
  • water-resistant coat and boots
  • several layers of loose-fitting clothing

The following guidelines will be used to determine the modification of activities.

Wind Chill of 15 to 30 degrees – Parents and participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for weather conditions using clothing suggested above. Programs may be modified to reduce the length of outdoor activities.

Wind Chill of 0 to 14 degrees – Parents and participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for weather conditions using clothing suggested above. Programs may be modified to reduce the length of outdoor activities. Programs will be moved indoors if an indoor option is available.

Wind Chill below 0 degrees – Programs will be moved indoors if an indoor option is available. All other outdoor activities may be cancelled.

The above are merely guidelines and participants and parents of participants have the ultimate responsibility to make decisions regarding participation in activities based on weather conditions. All temperatures noted above are in degrees Fahrenheit.
