2014 ~ Celebrating Our Centennial Year
Thanks to all that joined us in a year long celebration commemorating Village of Palos Park incorporation through community programs, great events and more. The Village of Palos Park is a charming bedroom community nestled in the midst of dense wooded land. A wonderful place to live and raise a family in a natural environment. We love this town for its profound natural features, where hills, creeks, and ravines abound. Large, aged oak trees line our streets and properties. Our one-acre zoning in residential areas has been vital in maintaining these natural assets, and the community members actively work to maintain our “pastoral setting, rural splendor.”
Explore the year long journey of the 100 year anniversary of The Village Of Palos Park. With the help of many organizations, village staff and officials, neighbors, and businesses the village was able to mark this milestone with great community events, activities and more.
