I am a third generation Burbank resident. My family came here when it was a new community on the outskirts of the big city, close enough for a short commute, but away from the city's hustle and bustle. While Burbank is busier than it was in the early 1950’s when many of the houses were surrounded by open fields, it still has a small town atmosphere. Children in Burbank only go to Burbank schools, including the high school. Many teachers are former Burbank residents themselves. And while there are many new half a million dollar houses going up where modest cape cods once resided, affordable housing can still be found. Overall Burbank is a good community to raise your family.
Review Burbank
It’s a small city with a lot of variety in stores. Walking distance are perfect. Parks are super nice and clean. They should make a bigger water park, with more slides and bigger for the people that live there. Also should have library that is open longer just in case people need to use anything from there. Pace should pass through later through the night. A dog park and able to have more than two dogs. Should have more activities in the district park for older people not just kids. More carnivals around the area during the summer as well as in the spring.
Burbank is a small suburb town of Chicago Illinois. It is just in the middle of areas such as Oak lawn, Palos Hills, Evergreen and more, making it easy access to nearby areas that are connected between each other. There are all types of businesses in the area that will accommodate to all your daily needed things. Many schools from elementary to junior high to high school and even college are all easy to commute to from burbank.
