Once an unassuming little bedroom community near Chicago, Bolingbrook is now a thriving, dynamic city in its own right. Bolingbrook’s over 70,000 residents need not travel outside the city boundaries for outstanding recreation, business opportunities and public services.
With a strategic location at the convergence of several major highways, Bolingbrook has attracted a number of businesses such as large distribution centers and manufacturing concerns, and boasts top-name stores like Meijer, IKEA, Macy’s and more.
Beautiful upscale homes are popping up and blending into the already well-planned infrastructure, with conveniently located schools that are ready to accommodate the burgeoning population. The construction of a long awaited new hospital is underway, which will further propel the city into the future with progress and prosperity.
Progressive development, community spirit, and countless recreational opportunities are just a few of the many treasures of the Channahon area.
Channahon is located where the DuPage, Des Plaines and Kankakee rivers meet to form the Illinois River. The name Channahon (derived from a Pottawatomi word that means “meeting of the waters”) literally reflects its location. Channahon attracted its first non-native settlers in the 1830s, and was incorporated in 1961. Currently, it is estimated that 9,800 people are now in residence.
Homes here reflect the tradition of steady growth and progress while still maintaining the comfortable atmosphere of a family-oriented neighborhood and come at an affordable price. The award-winning Channahon Park District maintains several park facilities and plans a variety of programs and activities for all ages throughout the year. Excellent schools, new shopping and business developments, and direct access to Chicago ensure that residents are connected with all the essentials of a quality life.
