NAPERVILLE RUNNING COMPANY SUPPORTS SNOW REMOVAL ON PARK DISTRICT TRAIL
Now in 7th year of partnership to clear two-mile trail for running
NAPERVILLE–Naperville Park District is pleased to announce that a seven-year partnership with Naperville Running Company will continue this winter to support snow removal on a two-mile trail in south Naperville. The trail extends from the Route 59 pedestrian bridge through Frontier Sports Complex and Ashbury Greenway to Naperville-Plainfield Road. Under the agreement, the Park District will clear the trail after a snowfall (generally when the accumulation of snow is 2 inches or more) and Naperville Running Company will reimburse the Park District for labor and materials.
“We appreciate Naperville Running Company’s willingness to contribute toward expanding our winter trail system so that more people can continue to run and enjoy the outdoors,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury.
Other trails that are maintained year round by Naperville Park District with snow removal as needed include the Riverwalk, the DuPage River Trail between Veterans Park and DuPage River Park, and the trails at Ashbury Greenway, Ashbury Park, Commissioners Park, Country Lakes Park, Meadow Glens, Nike Sports Complex, Wil-O-Way Commons, Wildflower Park and Wolf’s Crossing Community Park.

Unpaved trails at parks such as Knoch Knolls Park can be used for cross country skiing or snowshoeing whenever conditions allow.
