Germantown Hills is a small, safe community with friendly neighbors. Most of the community lives in newer homes. There are neighborhood watches and block parties for all to enjoy and feel comforted by. Most things are within walking distance. Newer cross-walks over main roadways have been implemented to promote safety for bikers, runners and children. New side-walks have been built to accommodate locals. There is a local small shopping center with Subway, Dollar General, Chinese food, Ace Hardware, Cefcu bank, Casey’s convenient store, another small bank and gas station. Local parks, and baseball fields. More business’ exist across the street in the same area.

Germantown Hills is a village in Woodford County, located in Illinois that sits outside of Peoria city limits approximately 10 minutes. In 2010 census, Germantown Hills had a population of 3,438. Germantown Hills is known for their top ranked school districts. I have four children that attend this school district and have developed maturely, respectfully, and improved their writing and reading skills tremendously. The staff is willing to go above and beyond to meet the needs of each individual student to be successful in their studies. I love the fact that staff is easily approachable through email and respond in a timely manner. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe, quite, and has easy accessibility to drive to favorable destinations such as; shopping centers, restaurants ,and parks. I would like to see more events happen here because it is a little dry besides a couple of restaurants and two parks.
Germantown Hills is a growing small town with an excellent school system and and plenty of friendly people. Germantown is a safe town with a true sense of community that makes it residence feel "At Home". Small enough in size to be a very peaceful place, yet close enough to the shopping centers of East Peoria, Germantown Hills is the perfect community for those looking for a small town feel without being too out of the way.
