Forest Park

It’s not easy appealing to city lovers and suburbanites alike. Somehow the Village of Forest Park manages to offer residents the best of both worlds with its easy city access and small-town sense of community.

Known for its award-winning dining scene, Forest Park has been voted by readers of the Chicago Tribune as the "Best Neighborhood Dining" in the Chicago area. Residents also enjoy plenty of recreation, including beautiful parks and an aquatic center with two large water slides and a volleyball court. Consistently chosen because of its wonderfully-maintained fields, the community has hosted the annual No Gloves National Invitational Softball Tournament for many years, featuring the best 16-inch slow-pitch softball teams in the Midwest.

Forest Park has a healthy mix of industrial and commercial businesses, including a major shopping mall and a bustling commercial center. Historic Madison Street is at the heart of the shopping and dining district, featuring local boutiques, antique shops and restaurants.

Students attend one of the four elementary schools and one middle school in Forest Park School District 91. High school students attend the prestigious Proviso Central Math and Science Academy as well as two private parochial schools.

Commuters have several transportation options with Metra, CTA “L” trains (both Green and Blue lines) and access to the Eisenhower Expressway.
