A young, vibrant community with a big city pulse and a small town heart is how residents of Bolingbrook, located 25 miles southwest of the Loop, describe their community.
Tree-lined streets and well-groomed lawns, open parks, peaceful neighborhoods and high quality schools make Bolingbrook a most desirable place for families to call home. The village's main streets feature wide, landscaped medians and flowering trees, which earned Bolingbrook the designation of "Tree City U.S.A.," by the National Arbor Day Foundation. The Park District offers more than 1,200 recreational programs.
Most students attend Valley View Community Unit School District 365-U, which offers K-12 education in 16 different elementary, middle school or high school buildings. Some youngsters will be enrolled in Downers Grove, Naperville and Plainfield school districts.
The Stevenson Expressway (I-55) has three interchanges in Bolingbrook and the North-South Tollway (I-355) ends there. The East-West Tollway (I-88) is north, and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) is seven miles east. Drive time to the Loop is about 35 minutes.
Midway Airport is a 40-minute drive, while O'Hare Airport is a 35-minute drive. Commuters can catch the Burlington-Northern train in Lisle for a 45-minute ride into the Loop or take the train from Lemont for a 50-minute trip. The I-55 Flyer Express bus reaches Chicago in 75 minutes.
