A multi-ethnic village of 58,000 that's located 22 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, the Cook County suburb of Mount Prospect boasts a variety of housing options, easy access to transportation and plentiful recreational opportunities. Home seekers can find everything from single-family homes of various sizes and prices to town homes and condominiums. Housing styles include colonial, Tudor, Cape Cod, Georgian and split-level homes. Instead of moving to other communities, many residents add on to their homes. The North-West Highway and Rand Road both lead to the Tri-State Tollway. Commuters can get on a Metra train from the Mount Prospect station and arrive in downtown Chicago in about 45 minutes. O'Hare International Airport is just five miles away. Pace bus service is available, and other roads such as Golf Road (Route 58), Algonquin Road (Route 62), Dempster Street, and Elmhurst Road (Route 83) link Mount Prospect with neighboring villages. For shopping, villagers can head on out to Randhurst Mall on Elmhurst Road. The shopping center features over 90 national and local specialty stores, a 16-screen movie theater, a Venetian carousel and play area for children, and a variety of restaurants. Residents can also visit the smaller Mount Prospect Plaza on South Elmhurst Road. Students have access to a variety of top-notch schools. Elementary districts include Wheeling District 21, River Trails District 26, Mount Prospect 57, and Community Consolidated District 59. Upon graduation from these schools, students attend schools in Township High School District 214. Many of these schools provide special education services; gifted programs are also available in all public schools districts. Social workers and psychologists are available to provide service to students and their families, and most elementary schools offer before and after-school care. For recreation, Mount Prospect residents have a variety of choices. The Mount Prospect and River Trails Park districts offer a number of athletic and fitness programs; facilities include the Central Community Center, the RecPlex Indoor Pool Complex and the Marvin S. Weiss Community Center. Sports leagues and art programs are offered, and there is also an outdoor wave pool, golf courses, a miniature golf course, outdoor skating rinks, many miles of bike and walking trails, playgrounds, ball fields, and tennis courts.
