Nestled in a natural setting with spacious lots and custom homes, the Village of Kildeer is ranked as one of the top suburbs in which to live based on factors such as schools, amenities, services, transportation and crime. The Village is located in the southwest corner of Lake County, in Ela Township, 29 miles northwest of Chicago and neighbor to Lake Zurich, Deer Park, Long Grove, Hawthorn Woods, and Barrington.
Lakes, ponds, streams, woods, wetlands and natural habitats prevail throughout the Village's 2,625 acres. There are many golf courses in the surrounding areas, as well as riding stables. Lakewood Forest Preserve is located at Rt. 176 and Wauconda Road with picnic areas, Lake County Museum, lakes for fishing, physical fitness trails, and facilities for hiking, ice skating, and tobogganing.
The Village’s growth has been carefully and thoughtfully guided since its incorporation in 1958. There are numerous shopping and dining options within the village, and many more in the surrounding communities of Long Grove, Lake Zurich, Buffalo Grove and beyond.
Kildeer is served by three highly accredited public school districts, including Adlai E Stevenson High School, and several parochial schools.
