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.

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.
Villa Park is a nice transition town for families that wan to live close to Chicago, but want the comfort of the suburbs. Turning around the outline of Villa Park you find that it is mostly homes with small spurts of businesses and schools spread throughout. This makes it a very enjoyable town for the simple things. The prairie path runs though town for you to take a walk or a bike ride to neighboring towns. The Small town center has a library and a few business set up in old businesses that were constructed in the mid 1900's. I feel that it has a very safe feeling. Your neighbors are friendly and look out for each other. The kids in town still play till the street lights go out in the summer. Since there are an abundance of homes, chances are you and your kids will always have friends near by. There is easy access to major highways that are close to Villa Park. You can also find a Metra train station in town that takes you right down to the heart of Chicago.
