Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
VOP-TV, the broadcast component of the Village's public information programs, was named best in programming excellence by the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors.
Oak Park's electricity aggregation vendor has begun the enrollment process with mailings to those customers who already participate as well as those who might want to join in the community program for the first time.
With fall right around the corner, a changing variety of produce can be found at the Oak Park Farmers’ Market, which takes place from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through October in the Pilgrim Church parking lot at 460 Lake St.
Nominations are being sought for awards that recognize efforts by organizations, individuals and businesses to improve the Village through property preservation, sustainability and accessibility.
Construction is underway on the 12-story Lincoln Development, a $60 million mixed-use structure being built at the corner of Harlem Avenue and South Boulevard. When completed in early 2019, the building will feature 263 residential units, 10,000 square feet of retail space and parking for 398 vehicles.
Oak Park Police are using simple silicone bracelets to help break down communication barriers during emergencies when first responders encounter individuals with autism, Alzheimer’s, dementia or other mental health issues.
The sixth annual Oak Park Sculpture Walk is in full swing, with 12 sculptures on display in an outdoor exhibit along Harrison Street between Ridgeland Avenue and Austin Boulevard.
Police say a few simple steps like removing the key often can help deter car thieves, whether you're involved in a bump-and-run ruse or the target of an old-fashioned vehicle theft.
Village officials recently joined nearly 300 communities across the country in a pledge to create a healthy habitat that will aid monarch butterflies on their annual migration across the continent.
When it comes to saving lives, every minute counts for the firefighter/paramedics responding to a 911 call. That’s why every ambulance and fire engine deployed by the Oak Park Fire Department is equipped to deliver advance life support (ALS) at the scene.
Four new bike shelters located near the CTA Blue and Green lines each feature a Fixit station, which includes all of the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes.
Like it or not, coyotes are a permanent fixture in Oak Park. But just seeing a coyote does not necessarily mean a dangerous situation for humans or domestic animals, officials say.
