City Center Park, the 8.5-acre park with access to the High Line Canal Trail is used in conjunction with the Aurora Municipal Center Campus. Bicentennial Park, adjacent to Aurora Hills Golf Course, is only one block west of City Center North and features expansive green lawns, barbecue pits and reservable picnic shelters. Both parks remain free to the public and welcome leashed pets.
Bicentennial park is even home to a free, off-leash dog park.
Health conscious residents can join the Youfit Health Club on the corner of East 6th Avenue and North Chambers Road. Additionally, the Beck Recreation Center provides residents of all ages with fitness
programs and activities. Memberships are available; programs vary in price.
One of Aurora's most hoppin' events is the Hops for Habitat festival at the Plains Conservation Center.
This 21-and-older event invites nature and beer lovers to visit every summer for samples from more than 15 microbreweries, meals from popular food trucks, wagon rides, memorable scenery and live music. Admission rates are $30 for "hoppers" and $15 for designated drivers.
