Villa Park is such an amazing town! It has great middle schools and Willowbrook High School also has an amazing staff. I have been living here my whole life and I could not imagine moving anywhere else. Downtown Villa Park is pretty small but it offers some great restaurants and even a museum. The prairie path is a local favorite to go running, biking or just to take the dog out. The Villa Park public library also offers many books and a place for students to study and use the computers. There is also close proximity to Chicago, with a train going from Villa Park to Chicago.

Villa Park is generally a safe town. There are events and activities available throught the year for the community members, enabling social interactions and the ability to meet new people and understand our own community. The land, schools, and roads are generally well taken care of, allowing for children and students to make the most of their childhood.
I grew up in Villa Park and returned there after years away as an adult. In many ways, the good aspects of Villa Park remain: the prairie path, the historic downtown, the quiet streets and the affordability. The library will soon be renovated and the downtown seems to be attracting more trendy businesses so I do believe Villa Park is on the upswing. If I could change one thing, it would be the village's lack of priority on green spaces and prairie restoration.
