The village of Barrington is noted for its Victorian, Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne, and other popular late-nineteenth century forms of architecture. Among Barrington's notable buildings is the Octagon House, located in downtown Barrington, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The downtown area is also home to the historic Catlow Theater, which features interiors by noted Prairie School sculptor and designer Alfonso Iannelli. Built in 1927, the Catlow is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places and continues to operate as one of the few remaining single-screen theaters in the area. The Catlow Theater was one of the first theaters to offer in-theater dining, provided by the adjoining Boloney's Sandwich Shop. Patrons may bring food from Boloney's into the 700-seat auditorium.Another historic building in the village, The Ice House Mall, is located just
northwest of the town's center. Originally built in 1904 for the Bowman Dairy, the brick structure, with its turn-of-the-century styling, served as an actual ice house for 68 years.Renovations and additions beginning in the 1970s have transformed the original building into a collection of local specialty shops. The Michael Bay 2010 re-make of A Nightmare on Elm Street was partially filmed in Barrington, using the village's residential architecture as a backdrop.
The Barrington area features numerous parks and nature preserves. The Arbor Day Foundation has recognized Barrington as a Tree City USA every year since 1986, in part due to the village's Tree Preservation and Management Ordinance governing the proper care for trees within the area.
The Barrington Park District administers several Barrington area parks including Citizens Park, Langendorf Park, Miller Park, and Ron Beese Park. Langendorf Park features tennis courts, playgrounds, outdoor and indoor basketball courts, baseball fields, meeting/activity rooms, and "Aqualusion," a water park that includes a zero-depth pool, lap pool, and diving area. Northeast of town is Cuba Marsh Forest Preserve, a 782-acre wetlands preserve featuring 3 miles (4.8 km) of crushed-gravel trail offering views of the adjacent marsh. The preserve is named for Cuba Road, which provides the park's northern boundary. It is administered by Lake County Forest Preserves.
