Spotlights of Deer Park

Elite Education

Deer Park is served by two public school districts—Barrington Community School District 220 and Lake Zurich Community School District 95. With both of these school districts being classified as unit school districts, they have the unique opportunity to watch students grow from humble kindergarteners to well-accomplished high school seniors. A large percentage of the district’s graduating seniors go on to attend college, some notably at nearby College of Lake County and William Rainey Harper College.

Exclusive Home Styles

When browsing through this area’s featured listings, you’ll find that no two homes look the same. Deer Park’s homes have several differentiating factors, including exterior features, price points, and style origins. You may find Tudor-style homes with vaulted ceilings and old-fashioned powder rooms in one part of the village, and then take a drive down the road to find a winding driveway leading to a beautifully crafted new construction home. One thing Deer Park homes do have in common is that they’re built on at least one-acre lots for rural lifestyles.

Entertaining Events

From summer concerts and fireworks to art fairs and farmers’ markets, there’s no shortage of things to put on your social calendar year-round in Deer Park. Located at the midpoint of the area’s business district, Deer Park Town Center serves as the primary venue for a variety of local events, including outdoor yoga classes and a summertime food truck series. A bowling alley and movie theater can also be found at the shopping center.

Today, the barn serves as a multi-purpose facility for community meetings, art and historical exhibits, and walking paths.
