2020 FAQ

Q: Why does the Frontier Sports Complex Skate Facility need to be renovated now?

A: Based on issues identified as a result of regular inspections conducted by the Park District, the facility needs renovations including repair and replacement of skate equipment.  Funds are earmarked to complete the renovation. 

Q: An online survey was conducted April 20 - May 4, 2020. What happens with the survey responses?

A:  Due to the current stay-at-home order, public meetings were not possible. Therefore, a Frontier Sports Complex Skate Facility Renovation survey was sent out to the public to gather information and input into the project. The Park District will consider recommendations received from the survey when developing a plan. The plan will be posted online for review and comment in summer.

However, the Park District will be considering support amenities including new seating areas and shade canopies. 

Q: What will change at the skate facility?

A: The rules of the skate facility are not anticipated to change, however, the equipment will be updated as a result of the project. The Frontier Sports Complex skate facility is unsupervised and free of charge for non-motorized skateboards, inline skates, bikes and scooters to enjoy.

Funds raised through the Naperville Parks Foundation support the Naperville Park District’s Fee Assistance Program. The Naperville Parks Foundation supports the recreation needs and desires of the residents of Naperville – encouraging health and wellness, fitness, family time, and fun. The Foundation supports the mission of making recreation of all kinds accessible to everyone across the community, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 Naperville Park District officials heard the good news for which they have been waiting for many months: the District has achieved national accreditation through the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

The decision was announced at the NRPA national conference in Atlanta following a formal hearing before the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA).

Naperville is only the second park district in Illinois to earn this distinction and the 104th nationally accredited agency in the nation; there are more than 10,000 recreation agencies in the United States. The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies accredits a handful of park agencies each year that have completed a multi-step process involving a self-review by the agency, a site visit, and an evaluation and formal report by the Commission.

“We are extremely proud to bring this honor to Naperville,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury. “It’s an affirmation of our high standards and also an encouragement to continue bringing high quality recreation and parks experiences to our community.”

The Park District’s accreditation process began approximately one year ago and included an extensive self-evaluation by staff and a 5-day visit from CAPRA reviewers this past July. Maintaining the accreditation requires annual reports and 5- and 10-year reviews.

Park District staff members noted that the CAPRA process has helped them see the big picture, focus on long term goals and plans, review plans more regularly, organize documents so that they are accessible and useable, and collaborate more effectively with other departments and outside organizations.
