Community invited to celebrate playground opening at Cress Creek Park Oct. 9
The Naperville Park District invites the community to celebrate the reopening of Cress Creek Park playground on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 5PM.
The playground renovations were funded, in part, by a $50,000 grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity with support from Representative Darlene Senger (R-96). The grant was authorized as part of the 2009 Park and Recreational Facility Construction Act (HB0313).
Neighbors are invited to bring their families and friends to the playground to participate in the official ribbon-cutting ceremony, enjoy refreshments, and explore the new play equipment and amenities.
Cress Creek Park is located at 1311 Royal St. George Dr. in Naperville. In the event of inclement weather, the playground celebration will be rescheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 5PM. Residents can check weather cancellations at www.napervilleparks.org.
“Playgrounds and neighborhood parks are as important as sports complexes, but in different ways,” said Executive Director Ray McGury. “Grant support helps us continue to meet the recreational needs of our large community both in developing destination parks for everyone and smaller parks where neighbors can socialize and spend time outdoors with their children.”
“The Naperville Park District includes fantastic park facilities for Naperville residents. I was happy to see the Cress Creek playground receive this grant to enhance the park,” said Illinois State Representative Darlene Senger (R-96).
Design of the new playground was based on input from neighbors and includes state-of-the-art play equipment accessible to children of all abilities.
