A growing community, the Village of Forest Park is nestled right next to River Forest and Oak Park. Incorporated in 1907, Forest Park spans 2.4 square miles, and has remained popular over the years because of its small town feel and proximity to downtown Chicago. Like its neighbors, Forest Park is mere minutes away from the Chicago scene, and removed enough for some peace and quiet.
Forest Park Real Estate Overview
Known as the “Village with a Smile”, Forest Park has been steadily upgrading over the years. The Park District, a 150-acre park offering plenty of outdoor activities such as tennis, baseball, and soccer, recently upgraded to include an Aquatic Center. The Aquatic Center features various water slides, as well as a sand volleyball court. The Forest Park Public Library and Howard Mohr Community Center are continually improving their collection and programs.
The local schools are excellent, achieving higher marks every year. Forest Park Elementary Schools 91 and Proviso East High School 209 are the available public schools – the private schools in the area include St. Bernadine School and St. John Lutheran School. Like River Forest and Oak Park, Forest Park residents also have Triton Community College, Concordia University, and Dominican University to choose from.
With all these easily accessible resources, it’s no wonder that Forest Park has become one of our most requested neighborhoods for homes.
