Welcome to Warrenville, the city that Julius Warren built after his family blazed a trail west from New York and settled along the DuPage River. Warren not only cut the lumber for the first homes here, he also served as a mail carrier and innkeeper.
Known for its scenic landscape, Warrenville offers numerous recreational opportunities from fishing and canoeing to hiking and cross-country skiing. The community, surrounded by five forest preserves and the Fermi National Laboratory, has more than 10,000 acres of open space and 30 miles of bike paths.
The Ferry Creek Wetland Restoration at Summerlakes Park features six acres of open land for water conservation and wildlife. The community also offers entertainment at the Acorn Community Theater, which features large-scale summer musicals.
Warrenville students attend Community Unit School District 200, which includes several elementary schools, middle schools and Wheaton Warrenville South High School located in neighboring Wheaton.
Located within the Illinois Technology and Research Corridor, Warrenville is home to several corporate headquarters. The community is accessible via the Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway and Metra, which has a station just south of the city in Naperville.
