Welcome to Mount Prospect
The Village of Mount Prospect is a nationally acclaimed community with small-town charm and tree-lined streets. Once rated one of the Top 50 Places to live; in the United States by Money magazine, Mount Prospect is known for its great housing, tight-knit community, and outstanding services. The village is 20 miles northwest of downtown Chicago and boasts approximately 400 acres of parks and recreation facilities, including four park districts. Residents enjoy an outdoor wave pool, two golf courses, a miniature golf course, outdoor skating rinks, playgrounds, sports fields, and tennis courts. The downtown features brick-paved streetscapes, wrought-iron lamp posts, and colorful flowers and landscaping. It’s also the site of row houses, townhomes, and condominiums as well as restaurants, entertainment, retail, spas, and service providers. Every summer, the Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce invites residents and guests to enjoy music, food, and fun at the annual Mount Prospect Downtown Block Party. Fridays on the Green help residents take advantage of the warm weather with free outdoor concerts throughout the summer. Residents have access to public transportation via Metra and Pace.
