A community needs assessment survey asks park district families, residents and community members what they see as the most important needs of the community.

A Community Needs Assessment Survey for 2023 will hit homes in mid-May. We have partnered with the Carol Stream Public Library to include a print version of the park district survey in their mid-May newsletter along with a postage-paid return envelope. The survey will also be offered digitally by email, website, microsite, and social media. Look for it and share your thoughts about park district services and offerings.

Community Park Groundbreaking

Carol Stream Park District Board, Staff, and State and County legislators joined the community to "break ground" at Community Park, located at the southeast corner of Carol Stream. This project is possible through a DuPage County Community Development Block Grant grant, a land donation from the Village of Carol Stream, and the District’s Park Board commitment to bringing recreational opportunities and space to this community area.
