Port Barrington is a village in Lake and McHenry counties in the U.S. state of Illinois. It was formerly known as Fox River Valley Gardens. Fox River Valley Gardens' village board voted 4-3 in September 2002 to change the community's long-winded name to Port Barrington. Supporters said they hoped the name change would boost property values by associating it with other nearby Barrington area communities. The population was 1,517 at the 2010 census, up from 788 at the 2000 census.
