Lived here all my life. Plenty of shops, specialty stores, variety of restaurants, churches, bike trails, parks and Yorktown Mall. At least 3 mainstream gyms. Every summer the downtown hosts Cruise nights for classic cars, rocking music and food (almost every Saturday in summer). In winter our Lilacia Park (next to library) becomes filled with a record breaking Christmas lights Our schools are average among public schools.
There are small spots in Lombard that are somewhat “underserved” by the village. It’s mostly the blocks between Saint Charles Road and North Ave. other than that tiny batch, any incident is rare. We have plenty of railroads, but the most likely thing you could see is the average car accident just like everywhere else. Otto’s is the motorcycle riders fave dive bar in the summer.

Amazing and Calm. No violence and very nice to go on a bike ride with the local bike paths! Also, traffic is never that bad. The parks and pools are local and not too far away from each other and Downtown Lombard has a ton of good places to eat and visit.
Lombard is a great place to raise a family. Events are consistently going on such as cruise nights with live music on the weekends, the lilac parade, ale fests, mutt struts etc. In the summer there is usually an event every weekend!
