Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Information gathered at four public forms will help develop a pilot project to test new parking approaches and technologies in one of the Village’s most in-demand parking areas - South Boulevard to Madison Street and Harlem Avenue to Oak Park Avenue.
Amateur and professional bakers alike can put their pie-making skills to the test by entering the Oak Park Farmers’ Market’s inaugural Pie Bake-Off on Sept. 2. The baking contest is open to anyone age 16 and over.
Nominations are being sought for awards that recognize efforts by organizations, individuals and businesses to improve the Village through property preservation, sustainability and accessibility.
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.
Warmer weather typically means construction, and this year is no different. Several projects are on the horizon in the coming months. The biggest project involves rebuilding Fillmore Street, which runs east-west across the entire south side of the Village.
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.
The Village of Oak Park encourages block parties as a way to build community spirit, meet neighbors and have fun. Each block may sponsor two block parties per year, but since some weekends fill quickly, plan early to get preferred dates.
