If there’s one word to describe Willowbrook, it’s “convenient.”
Located near several major thoroughfares, the charming village gives residents easy access to a number of Chicagoland destinations including downtown Chicago, Midway International Airport, and the regional business center of Oak Brook.
While small in size, Willowbrook offers an abundance of recreational opportunities. The community is home to 10 parks including Tony and Florence Borse Memorial Community Park, the largest in the area with ball fields, volleyball and basketball courts, a playground, and picnic pavilions. The fun doesn’t stop there, as other local parks offer additional amenities such as tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, and fishing ponds.
Nearby Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve offers over 2,500 acres of gently rolling to hilly terrain where hikers, bikers, horseback riders, and cross-country skiers can venture through approximately 11 miles of trails, and nature lovers can explore 740 native plant species. Visitors can also go fishing or take on the orienteering course.
The community also boasts thriving retail centers like the Willowbrook Town Center, which offers a wealth of dining, shopping, and entertainment options. The Willowbrook Ice Arena is a premier destination for residents looking to hit the ice on an NHL-sized rink.
