Living in Oak Park

Welcome to Oak Park

Home to more than 52,000 people and located just seven miles west of Chicago’s downtown Loop, Oak Park is one of the country’s most successfully diverse and welcoming communities, with excellent schools, abundant culture, ample green space and world-renowned architecture.

It is a community rich with history. Innovators and creators such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Ernest Hemingway, Ludacris and Betty White have made Oak Park their home.  

Getting to and from (and around) Oak Park is easy. We are served by two CTA train lines—the blue and the green—as well as the regional Metra train and the I-290 expressway. Oak Park is also one of the Chicago area’s most bikeable and walkable communities (rated a “Walker’s Paradise” with a walk score of 97 out of 100).

And when you live with Oak Park Residence Corporation, you get a high-quality apartment with up-to-date amenities and a landlord that cares about you, your comfort, and your needs.
