With an abundance of parks and a growing shopping and dining scene, Orland Park is one of the most sought-after places to live in Chicago’s south suburbs.
The village has a population of nearly 60,000 and appeals to those looking for a vibrant, tight-knit community in close proximity to the city of Chicago. Parks, trails, and golf courses abound, offering plenty of recreational opportunities for outdoorsy types. In the summer, Lake Sedgewick is the premier place to explore, fish, and boat, with pedal boats and kayaks available for rent. The Centennial Park Aquatic Center is another popular spot where residents can cool off in the pool or play a game of volleyball. Athletic fields and seasonal events are also hosted at Centennial Park.
When it comes to live entertainment, there are several nearby attractions including the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre – one of Chicagoland’s largest outdoor music venues – located in Tinley Park. Even closer to home is the Orland Park Theatre Troupe, which has been putting on an array of productions for locals to enjoy since 1993.
Approximately a 27-mile drive from downtown Chicago, Orland Park offers convenient access to I-294, I-355, I-57, and I-80. Commuters are just a train ride away from the city thanks to Metra’s SouthWest Service line, which has a stop in Orland Park.
