Once known as Ontarioville, the village has a population of 38,000, covers nearly five square miles, and boasts good shopping and recreational opportunities, quality education, and an excellent library system. To do their shopping, residents can visit one of 17 area shopping centers, ranging in size from 6,000 to over 200,000 square feet. One of these shopping districts is the Tradewinds Shopping Center on the northeast corner of Irving Park and Barrington Roads.

The town is served by seven K-12 school districts and several high schools; higher education opportunities are provided by various area colleges including College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Elgin Community College, William Rainey Harper College in Palatine, and Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. Hanover Park has two library districts, each of which has a single branch facility within the village. The Poplar Creek Branch Library offers reading and educational materials for adults and children including a variety of books, periodicals, videos and compact disks.
