Starting the week of May 2, the protective surfacing at Jirsa Park is being changed from engineered wood fiber (wood chips) to a complete synthetic playground system, similar to Carolshire, McCaslin and Armstrong Parks. The process may take a full week (weather dependent). Thank you for your cooperation.
Jirsa Park is a 12-acre park on the west side of Carol Stream, named after Joseph Jirsa, a former park board commissioner. The park includes a playground for all ages and a small pond for fishing. The park is adjacent to Slepicka Homestead Park. A path connecting these two parks provides for an enjoyable walk.
