Lake Forest Information
Lake Forest, located 31 miles north of the Loop, is known for its natural beauty and the preservation of its historic sites and landscapes. The city of Lake Forest has beautiful architecture, picturesque streets and a quaint, rural quality that makes it a wonderful place to live. The architect who designed the city in 1857 planned it as a “city in a park.” This plan takes into account the natural qualities of the town such as ravines and lake bluffs.

The Parks and Recreation Department of Lake Forest offer a variety of programs to residents of all ages throughout the year. There are special programs for kids including camps, a dance academy, and different educational programs. For adults, there are fitness and adventure programs, along with different workshops and special events. There are ten different parks located within the boundaries of Lake Forest. Forest Park Beach has a boat launching area, and is located on the shores of Lake Michigan. An 18-hole golf course and a nature preserve add to the natural beauty of Lake Forest.

Schools: Lake Forest Elementary School District 67 offers three elementary schools and one middle school for residents of Lake Forest.

Transportation: The Edens Expressway (I-94) runs just to the west of Lake Forest, connecting with other major highways in the area. U.S.41 is the major north-south route nearest to the community.
