Incorporated in 1959, Oakwood Hills is a quiet village that began as a summer resort community. The pride of the community is the 47-acre Silver Lake, a gravel-based, spring-fed body of water that is surrounded by single-family homes.
Oakwood Hills North Beach and South Beach Park are popular destinations for swimming, picnicking, and sunbathing, while the lake welcomes fishing and non-motorized boating. More outdoor activities can be found at the Chalet Hills Golf Club as well as Park and Fen, a 42-acre village park offering a baseball diamond, volleyball court, basketball court, and nature trails through picturesque, wooded ravines. The park also includes a fen dedicated as an Illinois Nature Preserve.
During the winter months when Silver Lake freezes over, residents enjoy activities like hockey, ice skating, and ice fishing.
