Park Snapshot - Cannonball Ridge Park (2087 Northland Lane)
Cannonball Ridge Park is a scenic park with a Civil War theme. Built in 2005, the park features cobble stone walls, battlefield type fencing, rolling hills and two fort themed playground structures for ages 2-5 and 5-12. This park also consists of a gazebo to provide a shaded resting place, a circle style basketball court with three hoops to encourage neighborhood play and skateboard elements. Cannonball Ridge is the only park within the Northwest quadrant of Yorkville that provides skateboard elements and is a great place for beginners to try various ground tricks, box flips and grind rails.
In 2015 an additional 5 acres were added to the park site allowing for a new baseball/softball field along with backstops, sidelines and homerun fence to be added to the park. A small hill was also added allowing for sledding in the winter.
Many of the parks within Yorkville have been enhanced through Eagle Scout Projects. A flag pole and additional landscaping were added to Cannonball Ridge Park by a Boy Scout for his Eagle Scout Project.
