One of the most popular aspects of Lombard is its Lilacia Park off of Park Avenue. In the month of May, the lilacs in Lilacia Park are in full bloom, making it a wonderful opportunity to stroll through and view the picturesque garden. Not only is it a beautiful sight to see so many flowers in full bloom, but the aroma is heavenly. It is the perfect park to visit during Mother’s Day. Lombard is also home to the Yorktown Mall, which is one of the largest malls in the western suburbs.
Cost of Living
The cost of living in Lombard is higher than the national and state averages. This can be attributed to the city’s cost of housing. The median home cost is nearly double that of Illinois. Though the cost of living is high, it is still lower than nearby communities such as Oak Brook and Glen Ellyn.
The city has its own Metra train station at Main and St. Charles Streets. It’s about an hour trip to downtown Chicago from the station. Lombard also has easy access to major interstates and highways, like I-88, Illinois 110, and I-355. For air travel, O’Hare International Airport is located 17 miles northeast.
Lombard’s school system is made up of six public school districts, with District 44 serving most of Lombard. The average teacher in this city has an average of 16 years of teaching experience and the district has a reputation for academic excellence. Lombard’s high schools belong to Glenbard Township High School District 87 and are shared with the neighboring town of Glen Ellyn. Elementary School 45 has a total of seven schools, but only three of them are actually located in Lombard. Students also have access to a private high school, Montini Catholic High School.
Aside from Lilacia Park, Lombard offers many events that happen annually. Such events are Cruise Nights on Saturday nights from June to August, or there is the Lilac Time Art and Craft Fair in May, Spooktacular Fall Fest that happens in October, and the Jingle Bell Jubilee that happens around Christmas time. Lombard is also home to the Enchanted Castle, a 60,000 square foot family center mega-complex that contains laser tag, miniature golf, go-karts, games, dining, and an entertainment center with live shows.
