McKenzie Square is one of Wilmette's distinct neighborhoods and named for the local school, McKenzie Elementary School. This area is roughly bounded by Green Bay Road on the east; Ridge Road on the west side; Lake Avenue along the north side; and Wilmette on the south.
McKenzie Square is a very popular place to live - it's centrally located in Wilmette - close to the school, train station, downtown Wilmette, public library, and the post office. Because the school is located between Wilmette and Lake avenues, children don't have to cross a major street to get there. (There are homes, however, that are located across those streets that attend this school, but they are not in McKenzie Square.)
If you are interested in buying a home in Wilmette, McKenzie Square is a better value than the Cage, Kenilworth Gardens, or Indian Hill Estates. Although there has been a flurry of new construction, there are still many older homes and bungalows available.
