Naperville Park District is seeking input from local users of the Centennial Park Skate Facility to help guide a new design, which will be completed in 2022 in preparation for a renovation of the facility in 2023. The design survey is available online now through Mon., May 23 at www.napervilleparks.org/news.
“We encourage everyone who enjoys the Centennial Park Skate Facility to take this survey,” said Project Manager Peggy Motta. “Your experience and opinions will help us redesign this facility to incorporate the elements that best fit our community’s needs.”
The Centennial Park Skate Facility was constructed in 2004 just west of Centennial Beach. The original design was based on extensive engagement with skaters, neighbors and other members of the community. Now that updates to the facility are needed, due to heavy use and the resulting wear and tear, the Park District is reaching out those who enjoy skating and know about features that would improve the experience for skaters. The survey asks questions about the overall layout, surface, the mix of elements and the type of skate features to include.
The Park District conducted a similar survey prior to redesigning the Skate Facility at Frontier Sports Complex in 2020, with the renovated facility opening in 2021.
