Choose Wheaton homes to live in the award-winning county seat of DuPage County. Wheaton is considered a suburb of Chicago, and is about 30 miles west of the city. However, there’s much more to Wheaton than its proximity to the big city. The Wheaton Park District has been awarded the National Gold Medal Award for Excellence from the National Recreation and Park Association. It’s not hard to see why. The city maintains 52 parks, with a total of 829 acres of land given over to parks and open spaces. Residents are welcome to play volleyball, soccer, and baseball. Kids have a blast running around on the playgrounds, and everyone loves a picnic. Get back to nature at the ponds, wetlands, and natural areas. Cool off in the summer at the swimming pools or try your luck fishing. Outdoor theatres are the scene for many excellent performances. City residents of all ages can get involved in sports, dance, art, and martial arts.
The community of Wheaton real estate owners come together throughout the year at fun events. Enjoy Shakespeare in the Park, a fishing derby, golf tournament, charity runs and more. Celebrate the holidays with friends and neighbors, with July 4th fireworks, the pumpkin fest, and the Festival of Lights and tree sale.
The public library is often rated as number one in the nation for its size. The collections of books, music, and movies are huge. Classes and clubs are held for children, teens, and adults. Learn to use computers and devices at the tech center and enjoy free wi-fi. There’s even a cafe with newspapers to read, pastries, and coffee.
Excellence in education is another reason to choose Wheaton homes. The local public schools are among the top performing in the state. Stellar private and parochial schools are also in town.
