Crime & Safety
- Public Schools
- Private Schools
I like that the neighborhood is overall safe, quiet, and family oriented. There are parks with a running path, grills, and gazebos available to enjoy with the family. There are grocery stores that are walking distance including a Mariano's, Jewel, and dollar tree. I particularly enjoy the centralized location of Bensenville because we are only about 20-30 minutes away from downtown Chicago, but we are also 5-10 minutes away from O'Hare airport. As a commuter student it is also ideal area because the metra is also walking distance. During the 4th of July, there is always a parade and the whole event is family oriented with flags and treats for kids. This is a great place to raise a family.
Bensenville is a city of about 19k people, although there are things that may happen comparisons to Chicago as in violence and such, that happens everywhere and cannot be controlled. Extending the O'hare expansion the planes fly over about every 10 minutes, and is disruptive but disregarding that the city is well. Parks, and school and public transportation is at good distances. People aren't rude from my perspective, but I have lived there 25 years and haven;t had any issues
I have lived in Bensenville for my entire life. I feel there is a lot of diversity here and there are a lot of good people. The cops are friendly and work hard to keep everyone feeling safe. never have I been afraid to walk outside my house, down the street or at the local park. there are plenty small parks and playgrounds and many churches of different religions in Bensenville. It really is a family friendly and oriented town. I would like to see more volunteer opportunities throughout the town to get more people involved in our own society.
