Located 33 miles from Downtown Chicago, the Village of Streamwood is one of the fastest growing communities within the metropolitan area. Enhanced by its rolling, tree-populated terrain, one of the Village's principal assets is the strong appeal of its pleasant living environment.
The convenience of urban business and shopping are combined with the pleasure of country living. Being designated a Tree City USA is another statement of commitment to nature and the environment. The wide range of housing available in Streamwood meets many income and housing needs.
Streamwood boasts an excellent and diversified mix of recreational facilities. Village residents enjoy over 230 acres of park land at 34 locations. Major facilities include the Community Center, Park Place Family Recreation Center, the Hoosier Grove Barn Banquet Facility, the Schoolhouse Museum, and one outdoor swimming pool. More than 350 recreation programs are offered each year to individuals of all ages, interest and abilities.
Although Streamwood is predominantly a residential community, it enjoys a thriving business community. From small specialty stores, to large, nationally known chains, nearly any shopping need can be met by local vendors. If it is a mall you desire, Streamwood sits in the geographical center of five major malls. Available land, accessibility and superior community services are essential to the success and growth of any business. Streamwood offers an attractive environment for development, with land available at competitive prices. Much of it is located along highly visible emerging traffic corridors. Its proximity to O'Hare Airport, Interstate 90 and the newly opened Elgin-O'Hare Expressway, make it ideal for commercial, office or industrial development.
