No Riding on Downtown Sidewalks
Pedestrian safety is a top priority in the City of Wheaton. To help keep everyone in the downtown safe, the City of Wheaton does not allow you to ride bicycles, skateboards, scooters, in-line skates or roller skates on the sidewalks within the heart of the downtown. While you can still ride on the streets, if you choose to go on the sidewalk, you must "walk your wheels" within the boundaries of the following streets:
- Wesley Street to the north
- Cross Street to the east
- Willow Street to the south
- West Street to the west
Note that riding is allowed on the portion of the Illinois Prairie Path that runs through the downtown, just south of the railroad tracks.
Riding bicycles, skateboards, scooters and in-line skates on downtown sidewalks is prohibited under Section 70-514 of the Wheaton City Code, and violators can be fined.
We appreciate your cooperation in helping make our downtown a pedestrian-friendly place for all to enjoy.
