Nike Sports Complex
The Nike Sports Complex expansion is now in play! Newly-opened amenities include the district's first lighted, synthetic turf field and multi-use fields for soccer, football and lacrosse. Other features are lighted courts for tennis, basketball and volleyball, as well as a playground and walking and bicycle trails. The Book Family Pavilion, the expansion's park support building, is named to honor the family that once farmed the Naperville Park District land.
"We're excited to deliver this diverse recreational facility to Naperville's residents," says Eric Shutes, Naperville Park District's director of planning. "We thank everyone involved in this project - and especially the community and the site's neighbors - for supporting this expansion and seeing it to successful completion. There truly is something for everyone at the new Nike Sports Complex."
Several thousand people are expected to use the Nike Sports Complex, which nearly doubles the size of the existing sports complex located along Mill Street between Diehl and Bauer Roads. The expanded sports complex also will feature one of two cricket pitches in Naperville.
