Downers Grove Township Reviews

Downers Grove is a very safe area, with many local stores and shops to choose from. As far as things to do you are limited but the surrounding area can help you in that department. There are many great places to eat and a local place for kids to play.

Downers Grove is a nice place to live. It has a downtown area with shops and restaurants. It also has many parks. Mc Cullum park is the hub of sports as well as a playground and mini golf. The neighborhoods are quiet and I feel very safe here. If I were to change anything, I would try to make it more bike friendly with more bike lanes for safe travel to the parks, fields and shops
Nothing that isn't out of the control of the township. Local government are mostly efficient and small businesses are able to thrive there.
