Palos Heights

Palos Heights is a nature lover’s dream.

Not only is the city home to the Lake Katherine Nature Center & Botanic Garden, where locals and visitors take in the area’s beautiful scenery, but it’s also close to Swallow Cliff – an 800-acre nature preserve – and numerous forest preserves.

As a tight-knit community, Palos Heights boasts many amenities and maintains a small-town feel. Community events are held year-round and include the Southwest Half Marathon, an indoor and outdoor farmers market, the annual Classic Car Show, and an Independence Day celebration and parade. Palos Heights also has programs such as Adopt-a-Pot – a community planting program that invites local businesses and residents to sponsor a pot or help plant flowers.

With a train station along Metra’s SouthWest Service line, Palos Heights offers transportation to Chicago’s Union Station. Major highways and interstates such as I-294 and I-57 are also located nearby.
