North Aurora extends a number of active and passive recreational opportunities. The banks of the Fox River offer scenic views, bike paths, parklands and fishing.
The bike paths connect to regional paths, allowing an enthusiast to cycle to DuPage or Lake counties.
The Fox Valley Park District, in addition to maintaining an extensive park system, offers a great variety of programs. From children to seniors and from mildly skilled to intense competitors, people will find their appropriate level of activity. The Village joins neighboring Aurora in presenting a fireworks display on the fourth of July. The Village also hosts the annual North Aurora Days celebration in August with fun events throughout the Village for all ages.
Active recreational opportunities include two golf courses, pool and billiards, bowling, horseback riding, off-track betting and a multiplex movie theater. Numerous restaurants serve a variety of American and ethnic foods.
The Fox Valley Park District also operates the nearby Red Oak Nature Center. The Nature Center offers a variety of hands-on learning opportunities, children’s classes and lectures. Bird watchers and nature observers enjoy the Center’s natural inhabitants.
