Evanston was designed as a prairie-values environment and atmosphere where families can flourish. At every turn you'll discover community planning that encourages people to come together, rather than keep them apart.
There are fewer fences and more open spaces, back lanes and verandahs - meaning more opportunities for conversation and more to see. Evanston's ample green spaces with playgrounds and a neighbourhood gazebo have been designed to be gathering places, too. It all adds up to a feeling of openness that extends to people's attitudes.
