Spring Valley is a gem in Schaumburg. Beautiful grounds, great programs and they have a new children’s playground. I love the living history farm. I was able to take a blacksmithing class there and I love the animals.

My husband and 22 year old daughter and I had a fabulous time. What a gem. We walked about 2 miles and enjoyed a beautiful day. Highly recommend. They appeared to be quite poplar with young families.
