Streamwood is bounded by an abundance of natural amenities, and fortunate to have two great park districts, all offering hundreds of acres of open space and recreational programs to serve our residents.
The Streamwood Park District is a full-service recreational agency serving residents who live west of Barrington Road. The Park District is responsible for maintaining all parks and park facilities. The Park District owns and maintains hundreds of acres of land at over 40 locations throughout our community. Major facilities include the Community Center, Park Place Family Recreation Center, Hoosier Grove Barn Banquet Facility, Hoosier Grove Schoolhouse Museum, and Sunny Hill Park. Hundreds of programs are offered each year to suit all ages, interest and abilities. Seasonal brochures provide descriptions and registration information, and are delivered directly to District residents. Brochures, as well as additional program and special event flyers, are also available at the Park District Administrative Offices (777 S Bartlett Road) and at major facilities. For additional information on programs, special events, trips or general information, please call (630) 372-3010 or visit the Streamwood Park District website.
Residents who live east of Barrington Road are served by the Schaumburg Park District. For more information on their programs and services, please call (847) 985-2115 or visit the Schaumburg Park District website.
Residents also have access to wonderful natural amenities in the Cook County Forest Preserve. The Arthur L. Janura Forest Preserve bounds the Village on the north and west of our community. The Janura Preserve includes notable amenities and locations including the Carl S. Hansen Woods, Bode Lake, Poplar Creek Model Airplane Flying Field and Shoe Factorty Road Prairie Nature Preserve. The Preserve is home to the Poplar Creek Trail System and its 21 miles of paved and unpaved trails that provide opportunities to horseback ride, bike and hike through woodlands and prairies. Rolling Knolls is also located near Streamwood and offers a large pavilion for events and a half-mile trail, sledding, fishing, and 18-hole disc golf course.
