In 1947, Round Lake Park was a haven for country living with quaint summer cottages surrounded by wide-open spaces, farmland families, and small-town charm. With a population of about 1700, the village had one policeman, a bar, a boxing ring, a dairy farm, a real estate office, and a pharmacy with an actual soda fountain. Residents drank from the same community well, borrowed sugar from their neighbor, and said “good morning” to strangers out for an early morning stroll through the quiet streets.Today, where acres of corn and soybeans once grew, and where city dwellers came to spend their summer vacations, Round Lake Park is a thriving community with a diverse and growing population, an expanding downtown business district, and a variety of resources dedicated to the service of our 6,038 residents.
