Millennium Wall

Millennium Wall

History

Naperville’s Millennium Wall expresses thanks and appreciation to everyone who contributed to Celebration 2000, a citywide festival held to welcome in the third millennium. Each inscription on the wall bears the name of a Naperville individual or business who contributed financially to Celebration 2000. The wall represents Naperville citizens working and planning together, united in a spirit of respect and honor for their shared lives within the community.

The original Millennium Wall was rebuilt in 2010 as the original wall was canting. The list of original donors are now cast in bronze instead of the tiles that were originally used.

Location

Located on the Riverwalk at Jackson Avenue between Webster and Eagle streets, the Millennium Wall anchors the top of the Riverwalk Amphitheater. Many free programs are offered year round at the open-air, multi-tiered amphitheater. A brick labyrinth path creates the amphitheater’s stage.
