Living in Western Springs
The Village of Western Springs is a quiet, affluent community known for its safe residential neighborhoods and tranquil, tree-lined streets.
Western Springs is “A Village of Towering Character” located a short 16 miles from Chicago’s Loop and everything Chicago has to offer. Downtown, the picturesque shopping district and the old Water Tower stand as a symbol of its historic charm. It is an area that offers year-round recreation – from numerous golf courses and country clubs, to over 80 acres of parkland.
It is an area with the values and character traditional of a small town, yet surrounded by the exceptional convenience of a large city – only 15 miles southwest of Chicago, and a short Metra train ride to the Loop. With easy access to I-294, I-55 and other major highways, as well as area shopping at Oak Brook Center, Yorktown and downtown Hinsdale, Timber Trails is a wonderful community to live in.
Timber Trails Park
Nestled among the grand homes of the Timber Trails Neighborhood, this 5.1-acre park is Western Springs’ newest, and features a state-of-the-art jungle gym, a Little League baseball diamond.Bring checkers or chess pieces for an outdoor mind duel on one of the picnic tables!
Timber Trails is the perfect location in Chicagoland. It is only 15 miles outside of Chicago and close to many expressways that lead to the city as well as to other suburban hubs. The nearby roads of Ogden Avenue, Route 83, I-294 and I-55 allow for an easy commute to just about anywhere in Chicagoland. The Metra BNSF Train Line is just a couple of miles north of TimberTrails in downtown Western Springs and runs regularly from Aurora to Chicago. The Pace Bus is another great option for city commuters, as it has it’s own lane on the expressway during rush hour. Having both Midway and O’Hare Airports close by makes business and personal travel so easy from Timber Trails.
