History of Lancer Park in Schaumburg
The beautiful Lancer Park subdivision is nestled east of Roselle Road, west of Plum Grove Road and north of Wise Road in Schaumburg. These single-family homes were built in the late 1960s and 1970s and offer a variety of ranch, split level, raised ranch and 2-story styles. Builders at that time also offered extensive customizing services which makes these homes even more unique. This well-established neighborhood continues to be a desirable location in Schaumburg. It is a thriving, clean and bustling community of families that consist of many beautiful homes, attractive landscaping, and recreational options to enjoy at your leisure.
Lancer Park’s vision began on over 40 acres of land that were reserved by the developing firm Lancer Corp. The idea was to build a community that consisted of parks, schools, homes, and miscellaneous public use. Schaumburg had already become an attractive location and this area became the focus to create a thriving community consisting of family building and living. Buyers and visitors originally completed surveys which also indicated community schools and recreational options were major factors in choosing this area. By the fall of 1967 Lancer Park was already taking shape and gaining a lot of attention because of its location, gentle hills, rolling terrain and the anticipation for growth. Throughout the years the Lancer Park subdivision would reap the benefits of a fast paced growing Schaumburg which brought in many new opportunities nearby. Newly designed and more modern schools, recreational facilities, companies and other businesses also provided more employment within a short driving distance.
Common neighborhood characteristics are broad safety curved streets and avenues as well as cul-de-sacs that were carefully plotted for added privacy. Schools continue to be highly rated and there are several beautiful parks including Lancer Creek Park and Meineke Park which add appeal and enjoyment to the neighborhood. Conveniently located nearby is The Meineke Recreation Center which is part of the Schaumburg Park District. It is home to one of the district’s fitness centers and offers a lot of amenities including an Olympic-sized pool with diving boards and a few slides. This area is also close to major state highways, restaurants, shopping, and businesses which makes it an ideal place to live.
