Lincolnshire, 31 miles north of the Loop, is a quiet community located in the midst of rapidly growing suburbs.
Construction in Lincolnshire has always been planned around its many mature trees, adding to its distinct rural charm. Strict architectural guidelines have been put in place to aid in the creation of a new downtown area that includes the addition of a 20-screen cinema and IMAX auditorium.
Although small, Lincolnshire is progressive and considered "business friendly." Some of the most prominent companies in America are headquartered here including the Marriott Corporation, Hewitt Associates, Hawthorn Realty Group, Van Vlissingen, Quill Corporation and Vorelco.
The seven-acre Spring Lake Park has swimming, ice skating, playgrounds, picnic facilities, a tennis court and a baseball field. There also are six other parks in Lincolnshire, including two with lighted tennis courts.
The Lincolnshire Park Board sponsors numerous and varied recreational programs. It also provides recreational opportunities not found elsewhere in the community, including pre-school dance, computer classes for adults and children, an assortment of art classes, nature programs, summer camps and various seminars. Included in its brochure is a complete listing of all programs, both commercial and volunteer, found in Lincolnshire.
Elementary students attend the Lincolnshire-Prairie View School district 103. The district places near the top of all state public schools on the IGAP tests and is a recipient of the Excellence in Education award.
Teenagers attend Adlai Stevenson High School in district 125. Some of the more than 300 courses offered include 19 Advanced Placement and honors courses. Stevenson is the only public high school in the state to twice win the coveted National Excellence Award.
