Getting to Know Arlington Heights: Facts and Local Guide

Arlington Heights is the 7th most populated community in Illinois with just over 75,000 residents. Arlington Heights is known nationally for Arlington Park Race Track, home to the Arlington Million and Breeders’ Cup horse racing event. Sadly, the race park has recently announced that it may be closing and has offered the property as a redevelopment opportunity. The area experienced rapid growth in the 1950s given its close proximity to Chicago and new housing. Today Arlington Heights remains a wonderful, quiet middle class suburb of Chicago. In contrast to the town’s quiet suburban reputation, it has ironically been nicknamed “action heights.” Top employers in the area include Northwest Community Healthcare, Clearbrook, Alexian Brothers Health Systems and Kroeschell, Inc.
