Lake Barrington is a wonderful place to live! Open space trails, free tennis courts, playground and splash park at Village Hall, and friendly neighbors. School District 220 is one of the best in the State. We are home to some great restaurants and Pepper Park coffee : - ) You'll find the tax rate here is lower than most, while the services are exceptional.
