About Oak Brook
Oak Brook is a small but mighty community.
With world-class amenities, lower real estate taxes, and a great location, it’s no wonder the village is a desirable place to call home.
Among the community’s most notable attractions is Oakbrook Center – a premier shopping center with a spectacular outdoor mall. Located near I-88 and just 30 minutes from Chicago’s Loop, it offers an expansive selection of department stores, over 160 specialty stores, and an abundance of one-of-a-kind dining and entertainment experiences.
Oak Brook is also known for its award-winning Oak Brook Sports Core, which is a reflection of village founder Paul Butler’s keen interest in sports. The 269-acre complex is nestled among the village’s gorgeous natural setting and features polo fields, a municipal golf course, swimming and tennis facilities, and other recreational facilities not commonly found in a village of this size.
Nature enthusiasts will find their calling at Fullersburg Woods, where they can explore trails that accommodate activities like hiking, biking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.
Residents also enjoy a variety of local events including a summer concert series, a two-person triathlon, the Pink 5K race, Autumn Fest, and the Taste of Oak Brook.
Residential subdivisions abound in Oak Brook, offering everything from stately mansions to ranch homes and condominiums. In addition to I-88, Oak Brook is near I-294 and I-290, providing easy access to O’Hare International Airport and downtown Chicago.
