I'd be glad to add them to our map. Just post here with the locations, and if there is anything specific to say like where to park or what area is best, etc.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

Ive found 2 great kite flying locations in aurora, the first on right on indian trail between randall rd and edgelawn there is a park with a basket ball court and a baseball field but right behind it there is a perfect field for stunt power ot just kiting in general, same goes for another park on jericho rd in aurora, its park not sure the name ill verify its just north of orchad rd huge park plenty of space for any type of kiting thanks for the replay hope this helps for more locations in aurora

Jericho Lake Park, plenty of parking i go to the southern most part of the park behind the farthest baseball field and you have the whole place to your self, and the southeast corner of randall park, you have a flag on the north west side but like the comments say theres always soccer players there and a road nearby the southeast corner behind the baseball field is ideal

Jynx, I thought that park was already on there. Well, it is now.

Nope, I looked there before Jynx spoke up. How about posting your new flying field? Surely you've found a new one already. You know, the one WAY down state!

Cheers,

There isn't an ideal place to fly in Charleston. If I can find a good place I'll have a kite/house warming party later this year.
