What Renters Like and Dislike About Oak Forest

Nice quire neighborhood. Good place to raise a family.. Well maintained. Good access to highways ,

We are close to grocery stores, our veterinarian and schools. We have families with young children that still move in. As a parent with an infant, I'm happy to see families with young children moving in.

My house is Close to highway, stores and parks restaurants near by. Many churches. Convenient stores and service stations on either corner of my neighborhood.

There are several parks, baseball fields and o soccer field within two blocks. grocery stores are less than a mile away

During the holidays, you can take your family to the surrounding shopping malls and there are many restaurants which are convenient for you to eat

I like going to see a movie with my family or go for a walk to the library, or walk to a near by restaurant or a store
