Elk Grove Village, Illinois

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elk Grove Village is a village in northeastern Illinois near the O'Hare International Airport and is a near northwest suburb, touching the city of Chicago.

It is one of the Chicago metropolitan area's main villages because of the large industrial park on the eastern border of the village.

The village is mostly in Cook County with a small part in DuPage County. 32,812 people lived there at the 2020 census.[1]

A small herd of elk live at the eastern edge of the Busse Woods forest preserve in the village. The elk are maintained by the Chicago Zoological Society veterinary staff and the Busse Woods Forest Preserve wildlife biologists.[2]
