With over 860 acres of Forest Preserves and open green space as well as walking and bike trails, Lake Barrington offers residents the opportunity to fully enjoy nature. The beautiful Fox River boarders the western edge of Lake Barrington, which residents can access by a public marina less than a ¼ mile away at the Fox River Forest Preserve and residents of the Barrington Harbor Estates neighborhood can enjoy access through a private marina. Village Hall is also home to many recreational activities available to residents by means of tennis courts, playgrounds, a splash park, a baseball field and a soccer field.
