I LOVE BOLINGBROOK! Everything about Bolingbrook is great. The schools, the stores, the diversity of people. Not only is Bolingbrook great but also it's neighboring cities.
Review Bolingbrook
I have been a resident of Bolingbrook my entire life, as well as my father and his five siblings. Bolingbrook is located in the perfect location from Chicago, not too close and not too far, with a commute time of about an hour. The library, park district, and village grounds are spectacular. However, I wish there would be a change in the amount of activities throughout the year. It is hard to find somewhere to hang out with friends without traveling to neighboring towns such as Naperville and Plainfield. I do appreciate the large amount of diversity, especially within the high school. In other primarily white suburbs, students face culture shock when they attend college. However, it is not the same with Bolingbrook residents, which is an important factor about living here.
Bolingbrook is great! The area is pretty safe and there are many local businesses and stores here. Bolingbrook High School is a great school as long as your kids stay with the right crowd, like all other schools. The principle, Dr. Pascavage is amazing and very involved in the school.
