Jaycees Park

Jaycees Park

Hitchcock Design Group

Naperville, Illinois

The desire for an outdoor flexible workspace near Naperville’s downtown core sparked the creation of Jaycee’s Park. Nestled between Naperville Municipal Center and the DuPage River, this ‘smart park’ includes outdoor seating and tables conducive to conducting outdoor meetings, power and USB outlets and free public Wi-Fi. Created to be eco-friendly, the site features solar panels on the Municipal Center to power the park, permeable pavers and rain gardens in combination with native  plants and trees that bring life to the space.

The permeable pavers, Unilock Eco-Priora rectangles, are manufactured with special spacer bars, resulting in 7mm joint gaps, that allow for rapid penetration of rainwater into the subbase and feeds the garden while keeping harmful runoff out of the nearby DuPage River. The herringbone paving design features a Smooth Premier finish, which gives a sleek and modern feel to this simple paver shape and provides durability and long-lasting color with Enduracolor Technology.

Jaycees Park is a place where work, community and nature come together to create a functional outdoor workspace. Community members, entrepreneurs and students can use this space to relax on a lunch or coffee break, host meetings, or break up the day with a change of scenery.
