Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Closing of the public parking garage is the first step toward a major mixed-use redevelopment project at the high-profile corner of Lake Street and Forest Avenue in downtown Oak Park.
The final draft of the Village’s new Comprehensive Plan is ready for public review and comment. A public hearing is scheduled for July 31 at Village Hall.
The Oak Park Sculpture Walk is back for a third season with 12 pieces installed in pedestrian-friendly sites in the Hemingway District along Oak Park Avenue from Lake Street south to Pleasant Street.
A sample from a trap in Oak Park tested positive for the mosquito-borne West Nile Virus. Public Health officials are urging residents to take precautions to avoid being bitten and eliminate breeding sites.
The Farmers’ Market is held from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. every Saturday from opening day through Nov. 1 in the Pilgrim Congregational Church parking lot, 460 Lake St.
As temperatures rise, so does the threat of severe weather. Being aware of severe weather safety rules and knowing what to do might save your life.
Bicyclists under age 17 are required to wear a helmet, but enforcement focuses on education rather than punishment.
Each block may schedule two block parties per year, but since some weekends fill quickly, plan early to get preferred dates.
A new study commissioned by the Village will focus on ways to bring bike sharing and other bike-related practices and infrastructure such as bicycle boulevards to Oak Park.
A one-inch rainfall on a 1,000-square-foot roof can send 600 gallons of water into the sewer system. Disconnecting gutters can help reduce backups.
For the 30th year in a row, Oak Park's care of the more 18,000 parkway trees has earned a Tree City USA award from the Arbor Day Foundation .
The Village of Oak Park has a number of communications tools in place to help local residents seeking up-to-the-minute information on their community.
