Nestled at the edge of 130 acres of oak wood-lands, wetlands and prairies, Hickory Knolls offers a unique blend of rustic nature and contemporary comforts. The LEED-certified building features beautiful views and an open floor plan with an abundance of rental space. Its convenient location, just minutes from historic downtown St. Charles and the busy Randall Road/ Geneva Commons shopping corridors, belies the utter tranquility of its natural woodland setting within the James O. Breen Community Park at the corner of Peck and Campton Hills Roads. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a cathedral-like backdrop with amazing views during every season.As such, the center is an ideal location for special events. Area couples have taken their vows and celebrated their marriage within the center’s warm and inviting Twinleaf Rooms and Gloria Klimek Exhibition Hall.
