Even though its a pretty quiet neighborhood, there's always a couple of people walking for exercise and even if they don't know you they still greet you and that just surprised me when I first moved here because I didn't expect people to be this nice. You can always invite your neighbor over for a cup of tea and chatter for hours about anything. And what I specially love this place is that every other neighbor owns a dog! We recently got a baby pitfall because of this norm! Since I recently moved here I'm not familiar with community events/engagement but I have heard that there are block party every year.

Glenview is a vibrant suburb north of Chicago. The town has a lot of parks and other interesting park district property, including the Grove, which has prairie and woodland to explore, and Wagner farm, a former family farm that the park district now runs as an educational and recreational facility. There is also a children's museum and a new downtown area, the Glen, with restaurants and shops, which is located in an area that formerly was a Naval Air Base. Glenview is connected to Chicago by the Edens expressway (I-94) and the Metra commuter rail.
I grew up in Glenview, IL for 10 years. I was 13 when I first arrived to the states from West Africa. Glenview was the first location that welcomed me. I felt safe within the neighborhood and was never discriminated upon. Even though, I do not live in Glenview, IL anymore, it is always a place I call home. A quiet suburban neighborhood with nearby suburbs/villages/towns, like Niles, Northbrook, etc. Glenview, IL has a nice scenic area called The Glen and a lively downtown, nicely remodeled library and great schools for the kids. It is kids- friendly with a huge park for families, Flick Park with a community pool. Nearby police headquarters and fire department for safety and well as community center that is up-to-date. Shout out to my high school, The Titans, Glenbrook South High School. Glenview, IL is a place to raise a family and live a peacefully.
