Village of Palos Park Welcomes!
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.”

2014 Fall Tree Planting Program
The Village of Palos Park will be offering the annual Fall Tree Planting program, which are planted through the Village’s Itrees.com program If you are interested in having a tree planted in the right of way in front of your home please call the Village Hall at 708-448-2700 to be put on the planting list, a tree selection list will be available for you choosing. Please note that trees as part of this program will only be planted on Village owned right of way. Trees will not be planted on State or County right of ways. Prior to the planting the Village Arborist will visit each site to make sure the requested tree has enough room to be planted and that the right species of tree has been selected for the spot.

Roundabout Research
The Village has contracted with a consulting engineering firm to develop a concept plan for the intersection of 86th Avenue and 123rd Street. The firm developed a initial concept for a modern roundabout that could add safety while addressing long-term traffic volumes at the intersection. This is only an initial stage, additional discussions will take place in the future. See the plan here ►
