Things to Do

is one of Hoffman Estates’ many municipal green spaces—in a major redevelopment plan, the park will add a 4,000 square foot splash pad to cool off during the summer heat as well as an open-air shelter, fitness equipment, and a playground. The Paul Douglas Forest Preserve
is a beautiful expanse of countryside that has been preserved to maintain its natural beauty. This 1,800-acre woodland area is ideal for birdwatching and bike rides, with 7.2 miles of trails coursing through the wetlands and the woods. The Paul Douglas Forest Preserve is also home to an 18-hole golf course, the Highland Woods Golf Course
. On the opposite side of town, Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club
has a well-manicured golf course and is a popular destination for weddings and banquets because of its pristine scenery and luxury appeal.
If you’re craving a night out, Now Arena
hosts concerts, comedy acts, and more in its 11,800-seat arena. This multi-purpose venue may be used for a monster truck derby one night and aerial acrobatics the next, making it one of Northwestern Chicago’s finest entertainment assets.
