Glenview, 20 miles north of the Loop, is a spacious and quiet residential community with tree-lined streets and an award winning school system and park district. Wise planning, careful zoning, proximity to the Loop and O’Hare Airport and a wide variety of homes in every price range have helped make this Village, one of the most popular communities on the North Shore.
Glenview is home to one of the most exciting recent developments on the North Shore – The redevelopment of Glenview Naval Air Station into “The Glen”. The Glen is a vibrant community of single family and attached homes with its own shopping center and schools near downtown Glenview. It is also home to “The Glen Club”, a nationally recognized golf course at the Glen.
The Glenview Park District operates parks, playgrounds, tennis courts, softball fields, basketball courts and “The Grove,” an 82-acre nature preserve. The district also offers a wide range of classes and programs.
