Planned in part by Frederick Olmsted, the designer of New York’s Central Park, Clarendon Hills is a “picture book small-town community.” Not quite two square miles in size, the Village projects a distinct charm and style. Residents and local organizations take an active role in maintaining the beauty of their community. District 181 houses two elementary schools. High school students generally attend Hinsdale Central High School in District 86. Four parks, two man-made lakes, a golf course, tennis courts and several playgrounds are maintained within the village.
