About Round Lake Beach
The quote “build it and they will come” is not just the stuff of movie legends. It holds true for the Village of Round Lake Beach.
The village started to take shape when a real estate developer built affordable homes and families started moving farther outside the city.
Located about 50 miles from downtown Chicago, Round Lake Beach is situated along its namesake lake. The village’s Lake Shore Park includes a beach, boat launch and two playgrounds.
Residents here also enjoy several neighborhood parks, a variety of recreational programs, a village sports center and a public 18-hole golf course.
Students attend Round Lake Area Schools Community School District 116, which includes five elementary schools, two middle schools and Round Lake High School.
The community has a train station on Metra’s North Central Line providing convenient transportation to Chicago’s Loop.
