Slepicka Park

Slepicka Park, named after the family that farmed there since the 1940’s, was opened by the Carol Stream Park District in October 2008. It features rare Black Walnut trees and a historic marker — 1940’s concrete silo — which displays farm artifacts.

The park, which qualified for state grants of nearly $700,000, includes exercise stations, a picnic shelter (available to rent) with permanent game tables, bocce and baggo courts and the beginnings of a small arboretum.

The park’s path system connects to Jirsa Park.
