The downtown business district of Oak Park and River Forest creates a vibe, a community, multicultural and inclusive environment like few others in the United States. Turn of the 19th century charm abounds throughout the streets. It is a warm and friendly village with parks and recreational areas placed strategically throughout the homes so that all the residents enjoy numerous activities ranging from outdoor plays and concerts to soccer and baseball for the children – always just a short walk or bike ride away.
The Villages are “people centered”. The streets have bike paths, there are nature trails in the parks, two public swimming pools, an Olympic style ice-skating/roller-skating rink, a conservatory, a number of breweries, wineries, coffee shops and boutique businesses, and nearly 100 restaurants providing a wide variety of food, entertainment, and meeting places.
