Bolingbrook Golf Club (photo courtesy Illinois Bureau of Tourism)Once upon a time, a road called "Route 66" wound its way from Chicago, IL all the way to Los Angeles, CA. In the '60s, it was a thin ribbon that connected Chicago to the far western and southwestern farmlands. Near where Route 53 crossed Route 66, an area once known as "Barber's Corners" and later "Westbury", a builder laid out a tract of land and called it Bolingbrook Subdivision. The rest is, as they say, history. Incorporated in 1965, the Village of Bolingbrook grew rapidly. Quintupling its population to 37,000 by 1980, there are over 70,000 residents there today.

A mere 30 miles from downtown Chicago, Bolingbrook is located at the intersection of two major highways: I-55 (old Route 66 -- now the Stevenson Expressway) and I-355, making it one of the most accessible suburbs in the area. The city is young (median resident age is 31 years!), vibrant, diverse and aggressively promoting its industrial and commercial growth while continually upgrading its housing.

Boasting a Gold Medal award-winning park district, hundreds of programs for children, adults and special recreation needs, good schools in five different public school districts, excellent hospitals, an incredible abundance of shopping and dining opportunities Bolingbrook continues to grow while offering the friendly feel of a much smaller community, referring to itself as a "Boom town with a small town feel". Bolingbrook has much to offer -- why don't you see for yourself?!
