Community Park Renovation!

We have sought your input about the future development of Community Park, located within the boundaries of North & Gary Avenues, Geneva Road and President Street. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

1/21/22: The Carol Stream Park District has been made aware that it is the Recipient of a Community Development Block Grant ($600,000) to cover a portion of the improvements that have been planned by the Community in the Master Planning Process for that site. Staff is hopeful that additional funding opportunities will come along so the entire project can be constructed.

See rendering of renovation plans that will start this year, 2022.
