Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

Activity booths, food vendors and entertainment will fill Scoville Park from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday, June 7. Special activities also are planned for Rehm Park & Pool.
This year the Sculpture Walk will feature 12 pieces of art along Chicago Avenue between Austin and Ridgeland, perfect for a self-guided walking tour.
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.
Individuals who have an encounter with an Oak Park police officer are likely to be satisfied with the way they are treated. That's the latest findings of an ongoing, long-term study by the Center for Research in Law and Justice at the University of Illinois Chicago.
The Village of Oak Park has been named a Tree City USA community by the Arbor Day Foundation for the 31st year in a row. Oak Park's urban forest boasts nearly 19,000 trees on public property.
Even while you talk to the dispatcher, emergency personnel are already on their way.
