Carpenter Park remains a historic centerpiece of the community. The park is surrounded by historically preserved pillars, home to the Veterans Garden, and a frequent venue for large-scale community events. The Village has images of Carpenter Park that date back to the late 1800’s – around the same time that the Village was first settled.
Located in the geographical center of the Village of Carpentersville, Carpenter Park hosts nearly twenty acres of open space and recreational activities. Carpenter Park was the first park established when the Village was incorporated in 1850’s. Community festivals, pick-up sporting events, and ceremonies are often held in Carpenter Park due to its size and location.
