PARKS AND RECREATION  

The Carol Stream Park District hosts 36 parks and playgrounds ranging in size from 1/4 to 74 acres. There’s an outdoor water park, two recreation centers, a skate park, two gymnasiums and a mini-golf course. And if you’ve got kids in your life, be sure to visit Kids World, a 16,000 square foot play complex that is ADA accessible. The park district offers hundreds of sports, recreation and performing arts programs each year. Sports-minded kids and adults can play in one of the many sports leagues: football, baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball and swimming. 

HISTORY

Jay W. Stream (April 17, 1921 January 26, 2006), a military veteran who had previously sold insurance and ready-mix concrete, was in the mid-1950s heading Durable Construction Company. He became frustrated with red tape while negotiating a planned 350-400 home subdivision in nearby Naperville, Illinois. A Naperville clerk reportedly advised Stream to “build your own town”, and in 1957, Stream began buying unincorporated farmland outside Wheaton.
On August 26, 1957, his daughter Carol and three friends were returning from Racine, Wisconsin. While attempting to cross Route 45 in central Kenosha County, the car was struck in the right rear corner. Carol was ejected through the windshield and into a utility pole. Neurosurgeons said the comatose girl might never awaken. On advice of the doctors that her recovery might improve with good news, Jay decided to name the new community in her honor. After four months, Carol regained consciousness. Learning the new village bore her full name, Carol said she thought it “odd and silly” at first.
Carol Stream never lived in her namesake community but moved to Arizona in 1957. She still participates in municipal celebrations and rides in parades during anniversary celebrations of the municipality’s 1959 incorporation, and is frequently asked for autographs when she is in town.
