Oak Park is a Great Place to Live! Posted On: 9/27/2006 12:50:53 PM
I've been living in Oak Park, IL since June of this year. It has been a very pleasant experience so far! It is located 10 minutes outside of Chicago, yet it is a slower pace and a peaceful place to be. There is a great deal of diversity here--in terms of ethnicities.
It is a great place to raise a family and the schools are outstanding from what I hear--many Pulitzer Prize winners have come from OPRF High School. Also, the aesthetics of the village are pleasing to the eye. They have lots of trees and a great deal of greenery for someone to enjoy. It is very historic...many old buildings dating from the early 1900s or even earlier than that!
Finally, I can not forget to mention that it is the birthplace of Ernest Hemingway. Although he was not crazy about Oak Park, Oak Park is crazy about the fact that they are his birthplace! There is a museum dedicated to him, and many special collections can be found about him at the Oak Park Public Library.
If you're every passing through the Chicagoland area, make a stop at Oak Park!
