The fitness center will be named after McGury

Last night Naperville park district The Board of Commissioners has initiated the formal process to rename the Fort Hill Activity Center Fitness Center to the “Raymond J. McGury Fitness Center“. On Feb. 1, McGury resigned as executive director of the park district after 13 years on the job. Under his leadership, the park district added many new buildings and spaces and earned accreditation from the National Park and Recreation Association. The proposed name change will undergo a mandatory 60-day review before being made official.

Named Pickleball Courts

The council also approved the nomination of future pickleball courts at Border sports complex the “Rothermel family pickleball courts”. The courts were made possible in part by a $100,000 grant from the DuPage Foundation’s Rothermel Family Fund. Construction of the courts will begin this year and should be completed by August 1, 2023.
