The Coral Cove Water
To cool off on a hot day residents do not need to fight the crowds at Lake Michigan just to take a dip. The Coral Cove Water Park is a great place to get wet and is right in Carol Stream. The park features a climbing wall located next to the diving pool, so getting down from the wall is a lot quicker than getting up. There are also several huge waterslides to keep things from getting boring. If the swimming and splashing gets to be too much, grab some pizza or ice cream from the concession stand and relax on the comfortable patio chairs.
The Great Western Tra
As sections of the Chicago Great Western Railroad were abandoned during the 1980s and 1990s, members of the surrounding communities could not wait to snatch up the land and convert old tracks into multi-use nature paths for citizens to enjoy. The Great Western Trail was then born. It consists of three separate sections, one of which passes right through Carol Stream. This section provides residents with over 6 miles of paved, gravel, or dirt trails to enjoy. It is a popular trail for an easy yet scenic bike ride, an outing on horseback, or even just a stroll on the plains and in the trees.
