founded in 1914



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.”

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 ►
