Fischer Farm

Fischer Farm

Fischer Farm is one of the oldest remaining homesteads in the county. The family settled here in 1836 and established a dairy farm. Their success was evident by 1919 when they had the beautiful foursquare farmhouse constructed. This homestead now forms the core of the Fischer Woods Preserve.

Free Admission 16W680 Grand Avenue

Hours: Closed until further notice due to Covid-19

This preserve is still home to remnant prairie and wetland and provides a glimpse of what the first settlers to the area saw. The land is valued both for these original seedbeds of native plants and for its historical integrity. The nine structures are all connected to the Fischer family and remain on their original foundations. The Bensenville Park District, in cooperation with the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, has been working to preserve both the homestead and the native ecosystems while promoting education and recreational opportunities at the site.

These classes will introduce body awareness and work on motor skills as well as offer a learn through play approach. These classes range from 2-5 year olds, depending on the particular class.

As well as the key points to making a routine and skills, students will learn to develop their individual passion for the sport. Level I classes are intended for 6-9 year olds. Level II Classes: As you move your way through the School of Dance and Movement, you will learn to master your skills as well as develop more challenging ones. Level II classes will be taught at a faster pace and students are expected to show discipline and enthusiasm for the sport they are continuing. Here you begin setting an example to other dancers moving up in the program. These classes are created for 10-14 year olds. Building Block Classes: These classes are made for all levels and intended for strengthening the core classes.

Iceless Hockey

Hockey has quickly become one of the most popular sports around and 5 Star Sports believes everyone should be able to play. For these hockey classes we will forget the skates and just focus on the major skills of hockey: shooting, passing, puck handling, defense and teamwork. Players will learn through a mix of skill-based games as well as fun, full on scrimmages. These classes will allow the kids to learn new skills in an enjoyable, safe, and controlled environment. If you’re looking for a fun way for your kids to get out and play this fall, iceless hockey is the answer. Min 4 | Max 9. (TL/SV)

Nerf Combat

We will transform the gym into an arena for the kids to battle and play fun competitive games. Each week we will have skill challenges where the kids will get to practice and compete in different aspects of Nerf Combat. Then we will have an all-out battle to wrap up each week. Nerf has many benefits including teamwork, exercise, disciplined fun and learning to balance competition with good sportsmanship. Each child MUST have eye protection to participate. They may bring their own guns, but we will provide extra nerf guns and “ammo” in order to prevent losing their equipment. Min 4 | Max 9. (TL/SV)

The only equipment you need is a soccer ball, cones, or a few items to use similarly, and a goal or target. If you take the clinic and need any of these things, 5 Star can drop them off for you to use for the classes for an extra fee. Each week you will have access to a video focusing on that week’s skills. The following week you will get on a zoom call to discuss the skill and ask any questions you may have.

We will also teach and practice many small ball plays, such as bunting and base running skills. Sign your kids up today and watch their confidence at the plate grow! Min 4 | Max 9. (TL/SV)

T-ball/Baseball Skills & Drills

Throwing, fielding, running and hitting will all be covered. All your child will need is a glove, a few balls, and a tee. If they do not have any of this equipment, 5 Star can rent them to you for the duration of the program with a porch drop off, for a small extra fee. Each week you will have access to a video focusing on that week’s skills. The following week you will get on a Zoom call to discuss the skill and ask any questions you may have. Our once a week Zoom meeting will keep it personalized and give the ability to make sure your child is improving. Min 4 | Max 9. (TL/SV)

Youth Crime Initiatives

The Bensenville Park District supports the Village of Bensenville, City of Wood Dale, Village of Addison and DuPage County Youth Crime Ordinances. We will continue to work cooperatively with all prevention and protection agencies regarding this matter.

We Welcome People with Disabilities

The Bensenville Park District complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and strongly supports inclusion. Inclusion looks at the needs, interests, and abilities of the individuals instead of focusing on their special needs. In partnership with our Special Recreation Association, NEDSRA, reasonable accommodations are provided to ensure successful participation in programs. When registering for a program, please inform our customer service staff if you, or a family member, require assistance related to the ADA. If you have any ADA related questions please call (630) 766-7015.
