The Naperville Park District will host a series of public open houses beginning in January to seek community input on the design of a future activity center at 1760 Quincy Ave.
The district plans to build a facility with about 80,000 square feet of recreation space on a 5.2-acre property at the site. The estimated budget to build the activity center is $23 million, including $2 million for the purchase of the land.
Park District officials said that although some needs already have been cited as high priority through previous community surveys, such as gymnasium space, indoor fitness space and an indoor walking and running track, the Park District plans to gather ideas from residents about other types of amenities to include in the building.
The open houses are set for:
Saturday, Jan. 18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Player’s Indoor Sports Center, 1740 Quincy Ave., Naperville.
Tuesday, Jan. 21 (geared toward seniors), from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center, second floor, 305 W. Jackson Ave., Naperville.
Thursday, Jan. 30, from 5 to 9 p.m. at Naperville Municipal Center, Rooms B and C, 400 S. Eagle St., Naperville.
