Central Athletic Complex

Central Athletic Complex

500 S. Naperville Rd. | Wheaton

The Central Athletic Complex 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 million 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.

Outside the Facility:

Ice Rinks

Outdoor ice rinks at Central Athletic Complex are available for public use, free of charge when winter weather conditions are favorable.
