Village of Brookfield

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.


Like nature? According to Chicago Magazine, “You’ll love this western suburb, which is home to Brookfield Zoo and a stretch of the Salt Creek Forest Preserve.”

Brookfield is a diverse community surrounded not only by a world-class zoo but many natural amenities like the Salt Creek bike trail, Oak Savannah, great parks, and a kayak landing! After enjoying these destinations, book yourself an appointment at Brennans Massage and Spa, refuel with a scrumptious pizza from Paisans Pizzeria & Restaurant, or a filet mignon slider at the Brookfield Ale House. There is always something new on the menu in Brookfield, indoors or out!

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.
