Elk Grove Village is a village located 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 principal villages due to its large industrial park, located on the eastern border of the village.

The village is located primarily in Cook County with a small portion in DuPage County. The population was 33,127 at the 2010 census.

Elk Grove Village is home to a small herd of elk kept in a grove at the eastern edge of the Busse Woods forest preserve for which the grove is named. The elk are currently maintained by the Chicago Zoological Society veterinary staff and the Busse Woods Forest Preserve wildlife biologists.[1]
