The community of Kildeer has always treasured its tranquil, rural setting. So much so that when a developer moved in with plans to buy up and rezone land to build a “billion-dollar city,” they stood their ground.
The community persevered, incorporating as a village in 1958. Today the village of 4,000 continues to maintain its rural tranquility and requiring developers to meet strict zoning codes, including building only one house per acre.
Although Kildeer is known for its quiet lifestyle, there are several amenities here. Residents enjoy local eateries and shopping centers with upscale retailers at Deer Park and the Shops at Kildeer. There are also local country clubs and neighborhood pools, sports, and tennis courts. A new bike path connects the village to forest preserves.
The community is ranked as one of the top suburbs based on its livability ratings including its amenities, public services, and transportation. Commuters can catch the Metra train at the nearby Palatine station. Highway 53 also provides easy access to I-90.
