Central Athletic Complex 2017-06-12T15:52:47+00:00
Due to the unseasonably warm weather, the Central Athletic Complex Ice Rinks are now closed for the season. We hope you enjoyed them and are looking forward to next year. We will be making some improvements based on feedback received and more permanent options for facilities. If you have any suggestions you would like us to consider, please let us know at communications@wheatonparks.org.

Central Athletic Complex

500 S. Naperville Rd, Wheaton, IL 60187 (Former Hubble School property)

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.
