Buffalo Grove

Nature preserves and golf facilities

Buffalo Grove, officially the Village of Buffalo Grove, is a village in Lake and Cook County, Illinois. A suburb of Chicago, it lies about 30 miles northwest of Downtown Chicago. Lake Cook Road splits Buffalo Grove into two parts: the Lake County Vernon Township portion and the Cook County Wheeling Township portion. Around three-quarters of the village is in Vernon Township. Both parts differ in their demographics and similarities with neighboring communities.

The Raupp Museum, operated by the Buffalo Grove Park District, chronicles the town’s history, starting with the Potawatomi and ending at the “bustling suburb of today”. The Buffalo Grove Town Center, a major shopping and retail destination within the village, is located at the Buffalo Grove Road and McHenry Road intersections with Lake Cook Road.[88] It accommodates the Buffalo Grove Theater and Bowlero: a bowling, arcade, laser tag, and birthday party venue.

Buffalo Grove has an extensive collection of parks and natural open spaces. Buffalo Grove has two golf courses and one indoor golf facility. The Buffalo Grove Golf Course is one of the largest open spaces within the village. Utilized as a floodplain, the course both functions as enjoyment and civil infrastructure. The Arboretum Club, which opened in 1990, is an 18-hole course with a 71.1 rating. Lastly, the park district’s 100 by 60-yard Golf Dome has a 75-yard driving range, putting green, and hitting stations.

The Buffalo Grove economy includes several corporate business parks, a diverse retail market, and professional services. Industrially, Buffalo Grove is stronger. In 2017, industrial property vacancy was lower than that of the Chicago metro area and the US; also, the average gross rent was double that of the area average, suggesting that demand for property was high in the village.

Buffalo Grove’s successful schools have attracted moving families. Three out of four schools in Aptakisic-Tripp Community Consolidated School District 102 received Blue Ribbon awards and many fine arts commendations in the 2010s. All Buffalo Grove schools in Wheeling Community Consolidated School District 21 received commendable or exemplary designations by Illinois in 2019. Kildeer Countryside Community Consolidated School District 96 has received over 10 Blue Ribbon awards. Three of its schools were named among the top 15 public schools in 2006, amd all schools earned 2009 ISBE Academic Excellence recognition. Stevenson High School has received the United States Department of Education’s “Excellence in Education” Blue Ribbon Award five times. In 2021, U.S. News & World Report ranked Stevenson 171st nationally and 6th in Illinois, making it 1st in Illinois open-enrollment schools. Buffalo Grove High School won a Blue Ribbon Award in 2000, and Chicago magazine named it a top 20 high school in Cook County in 2012. A French teacher won the Dorothy S.
