Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
Local housing officials will conduct a free seminar for condominium owners and association board members on June 28 to discuss changes to the Illinois Condominium Property Act.
The seventh annual Oak Park Sculpture Walk is underway with 12 sculptures on display in an outdoor exhibit along Oak Park Avenue just north and south of the Eisenhower Expressway between Lexington and Van Buren streets.
The most high-profile project on the horizon this summer will repair and replace deteriorating water and sewer mains and resurface the roadway along sections of North Boulevard and South Boulevard between Marion Street and Oak Park Avenue.
Village vehicle stickers went on sale as renewal notices were sent to residents who purchased stickers last year. Every Oak Park resident who owns or leases a motor vehicle is required to display a valid Village sticker annually before July 15 to get the lowest rate.
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.
Oak Parkers interested in reducing the amount of organic material sent to landfills can sign up for the Village's composting program and receive a discount in the process.
The 43rd season of the Oak Park Farmers’ Market kicks off Saturday, May 19. The dynamic, open-air, producer-only market is held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. rain or shine every Saturday from opening day through October at 460 Lake St.
Residents interested in really getting to know the details of their Oak Park properties have an online resource available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Nearly 90 percent of all crime in Oak Park is against property, but armed robberies and vehicle hijackings do sometimes occur here. The best defense, Oak Park Police say, is to try to avoiding being an easy victim.
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.
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.
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.
