Dixon is a proud friendly community. We are proud of our heritage and always anxious to welcome visitors and new citizens. Our pace is comfortable but progressive.
Dixon homes accommodate a wide spectrum of price ranges to satisfy a variety of lifestyles. From modest single family houses and apartments to luxurious condominiums, one will find a diverse mixture of homes. Architectural styles run the gamut: early American, traditional, contemporary and modern. Many homes are nestled along the river in several quiet subdivisions.
Along with the recreational opportunities of the river, there are more parks per capita than any other town in Illinois. Many of the parks are located along the Rock River, including the 200 magnificent acres of Lowell Park. No matter where one lives, there is the quiet nature of green space - a park nearby. Scattered about are recreational facilities providing convenient access for sporting or leisure activities. The Dixon Park District offers many programs as well as various summer and winter activities for all ages.
Lifestyles are varied, and Dixon citizens pride themselves on good clean values and a genuine concern about our community and neighbors. A quiet morning or evening can be highlighted with a walk along the river and feeding or watching the hundreds of ducks and geese that call Page Park, their "home."
Dixon has a strong commitment to the young people and their gaining a quality education. The community has three excellent kindergarten through fifth grade elementary schools, a middle school for sixth through eighth grade students and a beautiful high school located along the river. Along with fine public schools, there are two parochial elementary schools.
In higher education, Sauk Valley Community College offers career opportunities with an associate degree program. The 165 acre campus stretches along beautiful Rock River and is committed to quality college education.
Dixon is an ideal place to live, work and raise a family. It is truly a great place to come home to.
