The Village of Lake Zurich is an established residential community with above-average wealth and housing values. Lake Zurich grew slowly after its incorporation in 1896. With its rural setting and 250-acre lake, the village was a popular summer resort community during the early 20th century. The population has more than quadrupled since 1960, to about 18,000, as the village has shared in the economic growth that has come from an expanding Chicago metropolitan area.
"Ideally situated a mere 37 miles northwest of the bustling city of Chicago, Lake Zurich's location is perhaps one of its greatest assets."
"Access to a nearby Metra station in Barrington offers riders a great alternative to reaching Chicago and a handful of suburbs in between."
The village maintains 32 parks, including 2 beaches / 1 Sprayground, 22 playgrounds, nature parks and pathways, pre-school facilities, athletic fields, rental facilities, fitness and dance rooms and much more.
"Whether you enjoy indulging yourself in the latest in spa treatments or prefer to sit back and get your hair and nails done, there is likely to be a place in the Lake Zurich area that offers exactly what you are looking for. From expert med spa services to stores carrying items that qualify as a special treat, there are plenty of places to choose from."
"The mission of Community Unit School District 95 is to inspire all students to be passionate, continuous learners and to prepare them with the skills to achieve their goals and flourish as responsible, caring citizens in a global community."
