What’s Close to Park Barrington Subdivision
Within a 2 minute walk is Ron Beese Park, Baker’s Lake nature Preserve which is home to the Heron Rookery. You will also be within walking distance to the Barrington Post Office and only a few minutes more to The Good Shepherd Fitness Center. The center of The Village of Barrington is a little farther, walkable if you are looking to get some exercise at the same time but the return walk is up the hill, so bear that in mind if you have shopping bags. If you need to commute to Chicago I suggest taking the car into the Village and parking at Metra or head south and pick up I-90.

Active Adults in Park Barrington?
Although not a dedicated Active Adult community Park Barrington homes could be considered as an alternative. Down size your home and acreage, buy a smaller more manageable property and remain in the Barrington area with an association to do the hard work for you. It frees up your time for more leisure activities.
With three of the models being ranch homes it sure seems an ideal choice when the opportunity to slow down a little is in the future. Barrington still has plenty to offer and with The Good Shepherd Fitness Center at your door, complete with swimming pool, fitness center, club and events, and group exercise programs, it offers everything to keep you fit for years to come.
