Lincolnshire, 29 miles north of the Loop, is a quiet community located in the midst of rapidly growing suburbs. The affluent village features custom designed, singlefamily homes on large lots. Construction in Lincolnshire has always been planned around its many mature trees, adding to its distinct rural charm. Strict architectural guidelines have been put in place to aid in the creation of a new downtown area that includes the addition of a 20-screen cinema and IMAX auditorium.

Although small, Lincolnshire is progressive and considered “business friendly.” Some of the most prominent companies in America are headquartered here including the Marriott Corporation, Hewitt Associations, Hawthorn Realty Group, Van Vlissingen, Quill Corporation and Vorelco. The seven-acre Spring Lake Park has swimming, ice skating, playgrounds, picnic facilities, a tennis court and a baseball field. There are also six other parks in Lincolnshire, including two with lighted tennis courts.

The Lincolnshire Park Board sponsors numerous and varied recreational programs. It also provides recreational opportunities not found elsewhere in the community, including pre-school dance, computer classes for adults and children, an assortment of art classes, nature programs, summer camps and various seminars. Included in its brochure is a complete listing of all programs, both commercial and volunteer, found in Lincolnshire. One popular event, sponsored by the Lincolnshire Community Association, is its Fourth of July celebration highlighted by a parade, a 5K race, games, food, live bands and capped by a fireworks display.
