The Community Center was built nearly 50 years ago and at one time was THE place to go in Streamwood. The Streamwood Park District is in the process of renovating the facility so that it can serve the residents for decades to come.
Beginning in 2020, the District started making the required and desired renovations to this facility as funding allowed.
In 2022, progress was made on several aspects of the renovation, including the replacement of the roof, upgrades to the old gymnasium including the installation of new FieldTurf, and the installation of environmentally-friendly solar panels on the roof of the building.
In 2023, major renovations to the Community Center will begin in earnest.
Starting in early April 2023, the Community Center will close for full-scale renovations. Some of the exciting new improvements visitors can look forward to include an elevator, a second-level viewing room that oversees the gym, a new lower level viewing window into the gym, fresh wall paint, new flooring, and much more. This round of renovations is expected to be completed in late 2023. (As with all construction projects, the timeline for completion is subject to change.)
Stay tuned to the Streamwood Park District’s communication channels for additional updates on this ongoing renovation project.
INSTALLATION OF SOLAR PANELS: COMPLETE
Installation of new solar panels was completed in December 2022. These environmentally friendly solar panels generate local electricity and will help reduce energy bills by an estimated 30%. There is no cost to the District for the renewable energy supply.
GYMNASIUM UPGRADES: COMPLETE
The upgrades to the old gymnasium in the Community Center included painting, removal of the basketball standards and existing gymnasium floor, and the installation of new FieldTurf synthetic grass, which provides a great playing surface for soccer, batting practice, flag football and volleyball. All gym upgrades, including the new turf installation, were completed in March 2022.
PLUMBING AND HVAC: COMING SOON
Other planned improvements include plumbing updates, new HVAC (including air conditioning for the gymnasium), flooring replacement, etc.
