The Paradise of the Universe: Nature Center
Adding to the rich history of Naperville’s Knoch Knoll Park, officials at the park district recently announced the establishment of a nature center. Survivor of the cherished ‘Paradise of the Universe,’ Mary Lou Wehrli and Alice Wood said that the original owners of the land would be joyful to learn about the land’s noble development.
Original land owners Will and Irene Knoch handed over ownership of the land so that the public could enjoy its many natural features and resources. It was truly a special moment for the Knoch descendants as many park officials and members of the local government gathered to share the news about the latest development of the park.
The budget for the nature center has already been estimated for a $5.5 million dollar threshold. The nature center will serve as a real-life, environment unit for residents and tourists to learn about indigenous plants and animals found on the land. On display at the nature center will be deers, coyotes, bluegills, racoons, toads and many more. The Naperville- known butternut hickories, sugar maples and bur oaks will also be featured at the nature center.
The expansive landscape stretches across 224 acres and it is located in the southern part of Naperville. Knoch Knoll Park is also the pathway of a river so it is expected that a mini-aquarium will be part of the nature center. The nature center will add diversity to the park’s current offerings. State representative Darlene Senger was also pleased to share that visitors to the nature center will learn about how they can help to sustain the beautiful natural elements of our land.
