Village of Brookfield

Are you a fan of the great outdoors? You don't need to travel too far for biking trails, parks, foliage, and picturesque creeks galore. Pay a visit to the Village of Brookfield, just 12 miles west of Chicago's loop and easily accessible via I-290 or its three separate Metra train stations that put you just steps from the both the Brookfield Zoo and the vibrant downtown district.

Recently recognized by Chicago Magazine for its lively forest preserve, Brookfield is a diverse community brimming with lush natural landscapes. In addition to its world-class zoo, voted one of the top 10 zoos in the nation by USA Today Travel in 2017, Brookfield boasts an appealing mix of recreational amenities like the Salt Creek bike trail, Oak Savannah, great parks, a kayak landing, and more!

After you've enjoyed the recreational attractions, explore other unique local spots like the Galloping Ghost Arcade, the world's largest video arcade with more than 580 original games dating back to the 1970s, and Eight Corners, the buzzing commercial district home to family-run gems like Mary's Morning Mix-Up. The village also offers a varied range of cuisines for every palate and personality, including the regionally renowned Irish fare at Irish Times and the warm, cheesy goodness of Paisans Pizzeria & Restaurant
