Exploring Barrington

Barrington is an affluent village in Cook County and Lake County, Illinois.  The population is around 10,327. A northwest suburb of Chicago, the area features wetlands, forest preserves, parks, and horse trails in a country-suburban setting. Today, Barrington and its nearby villages are considered to be some of the wealthiest in the country.

The town has numerous job opportunities making life comfortable and sustainable. There is a pleasant atmosphere in the ‘Downtown’ region making the region enjoyable to live in.  This area is unique.  Why?  Because it is only slightly over an hour from an amazing city, but here there are so many wide-open spaces and residents here give it an A+ for quality of life.  The  Park District is amazing and most residents take full advantage of the numerous offerings.  There is a preschool, a fitness center, athletics.  They offer trips for children and adult-themed trips. There are arts and crafts and cheer.  There is a summer camp and SO MUCH MORE.  I highly suggest you check out all they offer by clicking right here.  As for Parks, you should explore:  Citizens Park, Concord-Meinhard & Columbus Parks, Ron Beese Park, Langendorf Park
