Founded by famed sportsman and captain of industry Paul Butler, Oak Brook has evolved into a thriving, sophisticated community. A modern commercial and retail base is complemented by abundant woodlands, ponds, streams, gently rolling hills and stately homes on tree-lined streets. Oakbrook Center has a growing reputation as Chicagoland’s premiere shopping site. Eight school districts serve the Oak Brook community. Most elementary students attend schools in District 53. Area high schools include Hinsdale Central (District 86), Downers Grove North (District 99) and York High School in Elmhurst (District 205). An avid polo player, Paul Butler was responsible for the polo field, which is home to the Butler National Polo Tournament. The village-owned Oak Brook Golf Club, sprawling 1800 acre Fullersburg Park, and the Oak Brook Sports Core with tennis and soccer facilities are popular recreational options for residents. The Park District coordinates numerous seasonal activities for the enjoyment of all age groups.
