The Wilds at Red Oak

1400 N. River Rd., North Aurora, Illinois ● 630-897-1808 ● Directions

The Wilds at Red Oak is a modern event space located in the woodland area of the Red Oak Nature Center property. Nestled on the east bank of the Fox River among seven natural habitats, this nature-lovers observatory – fitted with overhead windows and sections of transparent walls – dutifully supports The Wilds’ theme: let the outdoors in.

The simple, sleek décor provides panoramic views of the surrounding 40 acres of woods, the Fox River, and its vibrant ecosystem. A large patio and double-sided fireplace allow guests to immerse themselves in the natural surroundings – just as it was intended.
