I believe Schaumburg Township is all about community involvement and family friendly. The park district and public works work tirelessly to ensure their are opportunities for all to partake in. It is a clean residential area with a great California like appeal toward the East side of town.
I’ve lived in Schaumburg my entire life, it’s always been very safe, has good schools, and lots to do. Now that I’m ready to go to college, I’ve run out of things to do and I have personally gotten bored of the suburbs. However, the neighbor is friendly, welcoming, and perfect to start a typical, suburban life.
