Not that I know of. I know they have two clay shotgun ranges/shotgun only and hand throwing only. And I know they have a small bow target course. But, I'm pretty darn certain you're not allowed to shoot anything else there.

Blu is correct. Personally, if it was a little "plinking" BB gun, I too would set up a small target in my basement. But, if over a certain FPS, the you DO need a FOID card. I wouldn't be shooting these in my basement. Call some of the gun ranges. I know Rinks in Lockport you're allowed to shoot most anything. MegaSports is handguns only I believe and you have to be at least 18.

Honestly, your best bet would be to either know somebody who knows somebody or perhaps drive a little ways out of the city from where you're at and knock on a few farmers doors. And maybe toss them a few bucks for the privilege to shoot on their land. Make sure you explain it's just a BB gun though otherwise you're probably spinning your wheels...
