Driving Directions and Tips:


From the North Hotels to the fields:
The easiest and quickest way to the fields from the hotels is to avoid going through town.  This can add 20 minutes to your trip.
We recommend one of the following routes.
Take Diehl Rd west all the way to Rt 59.  Take Rt 59 South (left) and follow to 95th St. 
Turn east (left) onto 95th St.  and watch for signs to Frontier Park Sports Complex.  Follow to 1st light which is Cedar Glade and turn south (right) Follow this around to the back of the Neuqua Valley High School Gold Campus. You will see the fields there.
Or…
Take Diehl Rd west to Raymond south (left).  Follow this as it turns into Ogden Ave and go south.  Take Ogden all the way as it curves east to Rt 59 and go south (left) onto Rt 59.  Follow Rt 59 South and follow to 95th St. 
Turn east (left) onto 95th St.  Follow to 1st light which is Cedar Glade and turn south (right) Follow this around to the back of the Neuqua Valley High School Gold Campus. You will see the fields there.

From the South Hotels to the Fields:
Get on Weber Rd going North.  Follow Weber Rd to Hassert (Also 111th St) and turn west.  Follow Hassert (111th)  to either Book Rd Or Rt 59.
If you take Book Rd, go north and you will see the Naperville Park District building and parking a few miles down on the left.  If you take 111th to Rt 59, you will turn at the McDonalds and follow that street around to the right all the way to the fields.  Both of these roads will take you to 95th Street, and you can get to the main parking from there.

PARKING
There is parking on both sides of the park.  You may enter from the west at Cedar Glade Dr and from the east off Book Rd.
Both entrances are south of 95th St.
- (west entrance) Frontier Park, 3380 Cedar Glade Naperville, IL 60564
- Right behind Neuqua Valley’s Gold Campus off of 95th Street.
- (east entrance) 3415 Book Rd, Naperville, Il. 60564

Overflow parking will be directed to Neuqua Valley High School Lots which is in walking distance of the fields.

Buses will be directed to park behind the main campus of Neuqua Valley High School.

Off the Field…..
The downtown area is really a very safe and fun place for the girls to hang out and there are plenty of less expensive places for them to eat in small groups. (Subway, Jimmy Johns, Potbelly’s etc).  the Riverwalk runs through the downtown area and is a wonderful place to spend some time.

The Info booth will be able to help you. We are so excited that you are coming to town and want you to have a great experience!!!
