Dear Residents, In our increasingly connected world, it’s important to take time to disconnect. Thanks in part to an Illinois Department of Transportation grant, the Fox Valley Park District will be helping its residents disconnect – by being better connected. True to our mission, and at the direction of our Board of Commissioners, we’re working to connect people to the things they’ve told us matter. We’re talking about the biking and walking trails that comprise our wonderful system of outdoor recreation in the Fox Valley region. The grant for $610,000 out of the Illinois Transportation Enhancement program is one of just three projects approved in Kane County, and was selected out of 218 applications state-wide. This project, along with other connectivity initiatives underway by our municipal partners – City of Aurora, Village of North Aurora, Village of Montgomery, and our surrounding Forest Preserves, provide enhanced quality of life for residents of our region. Our connection to fitness and wellness is about to get stronger with our new offering at the Prisco Community Center. A significant renovation, made possible in part by a $2 million grant from IDNR, delivers an all-new 4,000 square ft. facility right to our core downtown community. We strive to deliver a quality fitness experience across age groups and demographics, and this facility will help meet that goal. The Fox Valley Park Foundation continues to connect with, and impact, young people in our community. A collaboration between Aurora Noon Rotary, our Foundation, Wayside Cross Ministries and the Aurora Township recently helped provide free swim lessons for dozens of individuals between 6-18 years of age. Helping provide access to all is at the heart of our Foundation’s work, as we try to service an estimated 75,000 recreationally underserved in the area. The Foundation’s 2018 Golf for Kids Benefit Outing raised over $60,000 thanks to the support of our generous sponsors, and those funds will be eligible for grant awards this fall. Speaking of fall, we hope to see you out and about around the district. From the natural beauty of Red Oak Nature Center, to Pumpkin Weekends at Blackberry Farm, it’s one of our favorite times of the year. On behalf of staff and our elected Board of Commissioners, it continues to be our privilege to serve residents and guests of the Fox Valley Park District. Jim Pilmer Fox Valley Park District Executive Director

Kids Fitness Initiatives  FIT FOR KIDS

The Fox Valley Park District is taking a leading role in the battle against childhood obesity. Teaching children the importance of exercise and nutrition provides them a solid foundation for a healthy future. In partnership with local agencies, the District helped create the “Making Kane County Fit for Kids” campaign. A major component of this campaign is the “Fit Kids 2020 Plan,” which provides guidelines, strategies and action steps to put children on a path toward healthy living. The plan includes initiatives and ideas that communities and residents can apply to a common goal. By working together, we create an environment where children make smart lifestyle choices that are beneficial toward their long-term health and well-being. For more information, visit makingkanefitforkids.org. WORKING OUT TOGETHER

This program encourages kids and parents to work out together and develop a healthy lifestyle. Equipment will be set aside to allow children to work out with their parents. All children under the age of 14 are required to complete an equipment orientation prior to utilizing the fitness floor. Call the Vaughan or Eola Fitness Desk to set up an appointment. (BM) Age

AQUATIC MEMBERSHIPS on sale now! Tadpoles 

Our Tadpoles class helps your child adjust to the water, which is a key factor in becoming a confident swimmer. In addition to the instructor, one parent/ guardian accompanies the child in the water to assist with the learning experience. Children will learn basic swimming skills, including submerging the face and head, gliding on front and back, kicking and beginning freestyle and backstroke. Instructors demonstrate water safety skills to parents/guardians and children using water games, songs, and positive reinforcement. This class helps calm any separation anxiety or fear of the water. If not potty-trained, children must wear a swim diaper under their bathing suit. No class Oct. 27-28; Nov. 21-25. (EE)

Little Polywogs who are ready for the next step can enjoy the same experiences they know and love, this time without their parent. Kickboards, noodles and floating barbells encourage swimmers to work hard as they learn basic swimming skills. Swimmers should be comfortable without a parent. To complete this level, children must be able to float independently on their fronts and backs, submerge their faces completely, swim freestyle, regular backstroke, elementary backstroke, sidestroke and breaststroke with no help and be free of separation anxiety. No class Oct. 27-28; Nov. 21-25. (EE)

Students with little or no swimming experience work on the basics of swimming, including front and back gliding, floating and the five basic strokes: freestyle, regular backstroke, elementary backstroke, sidestroke and breaststroke. To complete the level, swimmers must be able to swim half the length of the pool, 12.5 yards, using all five strokes. Children may need to repeat this level more than once depending on their initial skill level and overall comfort in the water. No class Oct. 27-28; Nov. 21-25. (EE)

Volunteer Spotlight Nicki Sweezer is an Aurora native who grew up on the city’s East Side where she loved playing volleyball, basketball, and softball. She is a graduate of Aurora Christian High School and former team captain who started playing basketball in the sixth grade. What’s abundantly clear about Nicki is her enthusiasm for life, love of sports and understanding of how participating in sports teaches fundamental life lessons in youth that will continue to benefit them throughout their lives. Nicki began using a wheelchair five years ago due to a medical condition. Talking about the challenge Nicki said, “I had a short-lived pity party and then got busy living life.” These days the spirited young woman spends her time playing wheelchair softball, hand cycling and lots of time volunteering as a Fox Valley Park District (FVPD) basketball league coach. Ryan Kertson Recreational Manager at the Eola explains his motivation for nominating Nicki for the Volunteer Spotlight saying, “I chose to nominate Nicki because of her genuine focus on the kids having fun, basketball development, and her passion for the game of basketball. When you look up volunteer coach in the dictionary, there is a picture of Nicki’s smiling face. She not only volunteers to coach her son’s team, she is a volunteer coach in the high school basketball league as well. Nicki continually goes above and beyond the role of a volunteer coach and the players love playing for her.” Prior to coaching, Nicki came to watch her son play basketball but then decided to get involved, by starting out as an assistant coach. However, after the head coach’s departure, she found herself coaching the team. Since 2006 she has coached the two Triple H teams comprised of twelve to fourteen, and fourteen to seventeen-year-old players. Her viewpoint that “you never know when you won’t be able to do something that you love, so keep busy doing it,” is apparent in her no-nonsense coaching style. Describing herself as a strict coach and one that strives to instill life lessons in the children that she coaches and to help them to become successful in life. She strongly believes that children learn from diversity and that it’s important for them to interact with others who are not like them. Nicki devotes a substantial amount of time during the week and on weekends to the FVPD basketball program and admits that volunteering can be a lot of work, but that the reward makes it all worthwhile. Nicki summed up the importance of volunteerism saying, “To me, it’s about more than just coaching. I want to be a positive role model for the kids and help prepare them to be strong, confident, men and women.”

Outdoor Facilities FISHING LAKES AND BOAT RAMPS

TRAILS

The district has a variety of fishing lakes for some relaxing fun. To ensure long-term, quality fishing at its lakes, the Fox Valley Park District has a cooperative management agreement with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources that is intended to develop healthy eco-systems and improve fishing quality. Rather than stock and re-stock regularly, the lakes management program creates a fishery that is self-sustaining. The payoffs for fishermen are greater catch rates and bigger fish.

The park district features more than 48 miles of premier regional trails (trailheads with parking listed below). Trail maps are located on the “Park and Trails” tab at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org.

Printable contour maps of select lakes are available online at foxvalleyparkdistrict.org. The maps feature lake depths and shoreline features, along with specific information on fish species, average numbers and sizes, and creel limits. Fishing lakes with off-street parking include: •  Foxcroft Lake: Elder and Birch in Aurora •  Jericho Lake: Jericho Road in Aurora •  Lake Gregory/Blackberry Farm (free with paid admission and valid fishing license weekdays only May 1 to Aug. 31): 100 S.
