Villa Park is known to residents as the garden village. Playgrounds, garden plots and lagoons can be found in the village's 16 parks. A nine-hole golf course features a seven-acre pond. The community has access to the Illinois Prairie Path, a 45-mile linear bike trail. An active Chamber of Commerce co-sponsors special events with other community organizations such as the Villa Park Historical Society. Some community events are Holidays in the Air, the Festival of Lights Parade, a Fourth of July celebration and Octoberfest.
Villa Park's Recreation Division offers more than 600 programs. The village owns two community centers, two swimming pools, eight tennis courts, two sled hills, three fishing lagoons and a golf course.
Elementary Districts 45 and 48 serve the community's children. The village has an after-school sports program at three elementary schools and other village facilities. Students continue their education by attending Willowbrook High School in District 88.
