Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Construction is underway for a sewer and street repair project that will cause closures along Chicago Avenue for much of the summer. During the first phase of construction, Chicago Avenue will be completely closed from Ridgeland Avenue to Scoville/Fair Oaks Avenue.
More than 140 information and activity booths, live music and a food court featuring local restaurants are among highlights of 43rd annual event celebrating diversity and community involvement.
Beginning May 24, Village foresters will be working with contractors to plant nearly 350 trees across the Village over the course of about a week.
Oak Park's 1,240 fire hydrants are being tested to ensure proper operations of these vital emergency response devices. If your notice cloudy water, just let the tap run for a couple of minutes and it should clear up.
New rates that allow up to 90 minutes free parking in downtown garages are among the latest changes designed to benefit shoppers and businesses in downtown Oak Park.
Twelve artists are needed to create murals that will continue the transformation of the railroad retaining walls along the Green Line corridor from dull, blank concrete into canvases. The deadline to apply for first round is fast approaching.
With a new public garage, convenient valet service and time limits in three surface lots to encourage turnover, shoppers are finding a range of new parking options in downtown Oak Park.
Pets are an important part of many households in Oak Park. Along with the companionship they provide come owner responsibilities to ensure the health and safety of the pet and the community.
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.
Oak Park’s comprehensive waste disposal program is designed to effectively deal with increasing amounts of trash, rising collection and disposal costs, legislative restrictions and growing environmental concerns.
The new Lake & Forest parking garage officially opened for business Monday as officials cut a ribbon and raised the gates for the first time. Hourly rates will be the same as in other Village parking garages.
Even while you talk to the dispatcher, emergency personnel are already on their way.
