Registration for 2022 Centennial Beach memberships is now available at preseason rates at Memberships are available to Naperville residents and nonresidents, for youth, adults, seniors or families. A “Plus Friends” option can be added to a membership until May 30, 2022, allowing the member to bring up to 2 guests.
