Information & pictures of Deer Park IL
Deer Park IL is my Home Town and is a warm, friendly, charming small suburban village. There is plenty of open space with many ponds and lakes. We have Cuba & Ela Marsh forest preserves and also adjacent to Palatine we have Deer Grove Forest Preserves. My family and puppies enjoy the bike & hiking trails which are well kept and very scenic. The trails run through the preserves and town.
Last year Deer Park had our 50th Anniversary at our very unique Vehe Farm/community center. Which is a 1800s restored and preserved farm and property including a barn, butterfly garden and more.
Deer Park is 37 miles northwest of Chicago. Sets in Lake and Cook counties, Cuba & Ela townships.The purpose of the original village was to keep control of the land use and zoning for the land east of Barrington. They accomplished that by setting the land usage as mainly 1 acre residential lots with a small portion zoned for business and light commercial. We do have a newer mall “Deer Park Town Center” one of my favorite places to be with great shops and restaurants. “Stoney River” with the best steaks and sea food. I have been there 30+ times and have not had a meal I didn’t enjoy. And “Biaggis” for great Italian food. Being Italian I don’t visit there as often 15+ but I have enjoyed every meal there and I am very picky when it comes to Italian food.
Deer Park shares Barrington and Lake Zurich schools. Check out their report cards on my site. Kildeer Police do a great job protecting our residents. And 3 Fire departments are very well equipped and do an excellent job with our fire protection.
Many people have not heard of Deer Park. It is worth a visit and a great place to live.
