Hampe Park is a 21-acre park site just off Lies Road and is popular with all ages. You’ll often find families gathering, kids meeting for “play dates”, teens playing basketball in the parking lot or skateboarding in the skate park.
The park was renamed Hampe Park in honor of Norman Hampe, a park district commissioner who served 1971-77, 1985-87 and 1989-94. Hampe initiated the 1994 referendum that funded the park, but unfortunately died two months before it passed. The park used to be called Hartsing Farm because the farmhouse, now referred to as the “historical farmhouse”, was formerly owned by the Hartsing family.
Celebrate birthdays, graduations, reunions or other events in the great outdoors! Picnic shelters are available to reserve April-October. The shelter contains 8 tables and can hold up to 75 people. Visitors have access to the playgrounds, skate park, sports fields and flush toilets (seasonal). There is a parking lot.
Whether you’re a skateboarder, cyclist, rollerblader – you’ll find challenges, along with friends, here at Carol Stream’s skate park. We advise you to wear protective gear, such as a helmet. Knee, elbow and hand pads always a plus!
