The Virginia Mary Hayter Village Green Amphitheater is located on preserved and restored wetlands, and its grass terraces and and grassy hillside can seat up to 2,000 people.

Transportation Options in Hoffman Estates, IL
Technically a part of the Chicago Metropolitan area, The Village of Hoffman Estates is right off I-90 and just fifteen minutes from O'Hare airport. While the interstate divides the town into its North and South halves, other major roads intersect close by, so it's very easy to get to local towns quickly. Commuters will have to go to Schaumburg or Palatine to board the Metra commuter train. However, Pace recently added another route in town, and the Village offers a taxi discount program as well as a township ride share program.
