Wheelchair-Accessible Activities in Naperville to Check Out this Summer

Naperville is simply amazing this time of year. Summer around this Chicago suburb is when the temperature is just right for enjoying some outdoor activities with your loved ones, with loads of fun places to visit for some good ol’ Illinois mood boosting.

Have a look at some of our favorite spots to check out, especially when you’re traveling with a loved one with disabilities.

Get Some Fresh Air at Whalon Lake

Whalon Lake allows you to enjoy the summer sun while boating, going on trails, and fishing. Invite your dad or grandpop to catch some smallmouth bass or a channel catfish. This activity is also perfect for bonding with the kids. The lake side is wheelchair-accessible and you can even wander around with your pet in the dog park.

Naperville Park Fun

The Naperville Park District is another fun-filled go-to destination we encourage everybody to explore. The entire district is home to loads of parks and playgrounds for just about anyone.

Their senior centers are a great place for spending time with grandpa and grandma, where you can bond over card games, table tennis, pool, and games to challenge your cognitive abilities and help keep the mind active.

Looking to spend more time with nature? Some of the best spots for birdwatching are at Seager Park, DuPage River Park, Knoch Knolls Park, and Pioneer Park.

Concerts, sporting events, outdoor markets, and more happen all year round, so make sure to stay updated on their website.

Most of the restaurants in Naperville have wheelchair-friendly ramps, seating areas, and restrooms. Please call ahead to ensure accessibility.

Tour Around the Naper Settlement

Are you a fan of exhibits, historical buildings, concerts, and other special performances? The Naper Settlement features a unique museum experience where you can take part in interactive programs and events. 

It has 30 historic buildings that you can visit to learn about Naperville’s history and many other interesting topics. Kids can also play and learn at the Rita and John Harvard Early Learning Playscape where they can get imaginative, physical, and social.
