NAPERVILLE, IL — Knoch Knolls Nature Center will reopen to the public July 17, with limited capacity as the new coronavirus crisis continues.

While inside the nature center, visitors must wear face coverings at all times. Visitors must also maintain six feet of social distance from other visitors who are not in their household.
Nature Center Manager Angelique Harshman said in a statement, "We are happy to welcome visitors back to the Nature Center. Families now can plan to stop by during our public hours and view the exhibits including the aquarium, live animal exhibits and educational signage.”
Knoch Knolls Park is also open to the public, as is disc golf and the onsite playground. The playground is limited to 50 people at a time, park district officials said in an update.
