Review of Bolingbrook, Illinois

Wonderful place to raise children
Star Rating - 9/12/2007
I moved to Bolingbrook from eastern Pennsylvania with my husband and daughter almost 2 years ago. After looking in some much more expensive neighboring communities (namely Naperville) I thought the housing value in Bolingbrook was extrodinary and afraid there would be some drawbacks for the more affordable home prices. I have been very pleasantly suprised with how convenient everything is and as a mother of now two children time is very valuable. The people I've met in town are extremely friendly and excited about living in an up and coming area and buying in while prices are relatively reasonable and watching our homes appreciate. The things I like most about Bolingbrook are the parks, the programs, the nature areas, shopping, restaurants, access to major highways and interstates and the friendly people. As with any city some areas are nicer than others but I've never felt unsafe driving in any and every part of the city. As the mother of two I love having friendly neighbors and I love having parks for my children to play at in virtually every mile of this city. The city has added many features programs and facilities to improve the quality of life and as taxes have decreased each year for Bolingbrook while businesses keep supporting our city, we have seen plans for many more facilities. It was definately a good move for us.
