Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Police will be out in force during the July 4 holiday period looking for impaired and unbuckled drivers as part of a statewide enforcement effort from June 26 - July 5.
This year the Sculpture Walk features 12 pieces of original art along Chicago Avenue between Austin and Ridgeland, perfect for a self-guided walking tour.
With research indicating that how individuals view the justice system is tied more to how they were treated than the outcome, Oak Park Police are working to ensure fairness is a fundamental part of how they respond in all situations.
Police officials are encouraging residents to make use of the lobby, which is open, well-lit and staffed 24 hours a day, for transactions organized on internet forums such as Craigslist.
Monday’s torrential rainfall left many property owners with damaged goods in their basements. Northeast Oak Park – the lowest point in the community – was hardest hit, as runoff overwhelmed the Village's combined waste and storm water sewer system.
The Farmers’ Market is held from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. every Saturday from opening day through Oct. 24 in the Pilgrim Congregational Church parking lot, 460 Lake St., one block west of Ridgeland Avenue.
Village vehicle stickers go on sale today, as renewal notices begin arriving in mailboxes throughout the Village. Online renewals offer a 10-percent discount.
Barrels allow backyard gardeners and eco-conscious homeowners to capture and store the fresh, abundant rainwater that falls on Oak Park each year.
The 2015 construction season marks the start of an historic initiative to invest an additional $20 million over the next five years in the Village’s vital transportation network and water and sewer systems.
Decades of commitment to its urban forest has earned the entire Village of Oak Park recognition as Illinois’ first municipal arboretum. A celebration is set for noon, April 24 in Scoville Park, where saplings grown from acorns of some of the Village’s oldest oak trees will be planted.
Motorists who frequently use Ridgeland Avenue between Division Street and South Boulevard may want to start thinking about a new route for much of the spring and summer - and maybe even into fall - as construction projects begin.
A survey arriving soon in the mailboxes of all Oak Park property owners is essential to protecting the community’s drinking water.
