Oak Park, IL


Oak Park Liveability - 5/5/2009
Oak Park, Illinois, is a wonderful community that has a lot to offer to families wishing to live close to Chicago but not in it. It is a community that has pride in its sense of community. It is diverse (ethnically, politically, economically, and in other ways) and active (from organized art fairs to local block parties). Of course, the home are older and charming and the pleached streets and alley-based garages make it a pictureasque setting. The schools are great (our son attends Lincoln Elementary and has been blessed by skilled and dedicated teachers year after year). We live in what is considered "South Oak Park" (south of the 290) and we consider it, especially our area that is west of Oak Park Avenue, a hidden jem.
Oak Park has its drawbacks, too. It is expensive and it is "land-locked" (i.e., because it is so centrally-located, it is hard to get out of the Chicago area from it).
