Hubble Athletic Center


Wheaton Park District is excited to announce the re-opening of the Central Athletic Center!
The Central Athletic Center is one of the park district's biggest accomplishments in 2012 through a partnership with Bradford Real Estate. The district bought a portion of the former Hubble school property from Bradford for $3.25 to preserve the gyms and fields it uses for athletics. Because the utilities that operate the gym came from the school building that was demolished, the district used a $2.4 million Park and Recreational Facility Construction (PARC) grant to complete improvements to the building.

Amenities include...
3 basketball courts
3 volleyball courts
2 batting cages
Tumbling area
Indoor soccer training areas
Baseball/softball training areas
Meeting/birthday party room
Concession stand

Central Athletic Center is located at 500 S. Naperville Road, Wheaton, IL 60187.
