About Burr Ridge
Listed as one of the wealthiest communities in Illinois, Burr Ridge has been dubbed “A Very Special Place” by residents and visitors alike.
Throughout the year, residents are treated to local events such as Concerts on the Green in the summer, a weekly concert series that is fun for the whole family. The annual Car Show brings together enthusiasts of classic, antique, and modern cars in a family-friendly setting.
Burr Ridge is characterized by homes on generous lots and distinguished townhome communities. Local shopping and high-quality office parks have been blended into this natural setting, attracting residents and valued members of the business community. This well-balanced mix of business and residential communities has allowed Burr Ridge to maintain a healthy corporate fund and one of the lowest tax rates in DuPage County.
The suburb is bordered by Hinsdale to the north, Western Springs to the northeast, Indian Head Park to the east, Willow Springs to the south and southeast, and Willowbrook to the west. Situated at the intersection of the Tri-State Tollway and the Stevenson Expressway, Burr Ridge offers easy access to The Loop and Chicago’s airports.
