2014 ~ Celebrating Our Centennial Year
Join 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.”
