Oak Park’s Quiet Life

The village is a home of mostly affluent, highly educated individuals. This reflects on Oak Park’s way of life. It’s served by 2 school districts (District 97 and District 200), has a diverse and widespread public transportation system (Blue Line, Green Line) and is connected to Chicago via Eisenhower Expressway.
