Hoffman Estates has a quiet suburban setting, an abundance of open space and a wide variety of recreational and educational opportunities that make it a great place to live. Some 35% (approximately 4,000 acres) of land is in forest preserves, parks and golf courses, so open places abound.

Recreational facilities, from racquetball to archery, horseback riding to handball, tennis, golf, boating and fishing are all easily found nearby.
