Twenty thousand acres of forest preserves, and the Illinois and Michigan Canal Heritage Corridor, make the residential community of Willow Springs a delightful place to live. The Heritage Corridor brings a steady flow of visitors and the forest preserves assure that the beauty of nature is always at the community’s doorstep.
Columbia Woods, the Little Red Schoolhouse Nature Center, and the Des Plaines River are all popular recreation facilities enjoyed by residents. Willow Springs is also the site of the Willowbrook Ballroom, preserving memories of the big band era in popular music.
Quick access to all of the metropolitan market is made possible by the village’s location on I-294. Pace buses serve the area’s transportation needs.
