What Renters Like and Dislike About Oak Park

The neighborhood my family and I Live in have very nice homes with character, the people are very supportive of each other, the schools are very good and the restaurants and shops are higher end

There are several delicious exotic restaurants in the neighborhood, so you can go to dinner with your family and friends.

It is very easily walkable, which is very important to me because I hate driving anywhere. It is also very safe.

I like being able to walk to the bank, the library, the post office, nearby parks, and the grocery store.

its close to shopping. schools are nearby and walking distance to downtown and public transportation.

i like goung to the park with friends and going downtown with family at night to see building lights

All About

Living in Oak Park, IL

Find an apartment in Oak Park and you'll be part of a community that honors the arts, historical architecture and economy of its city. You'll see this in abundance in three areas: Oak Park's Arts District, its three historic neighborhoods and downtown Oak Park.

Do you love art of any (or every) kind? If so, you'll love living in an apartment in Oak Park's Arts District. The Oak Park Area Arts Council was founded in 1974 by local artists and is devoted to raising money for the arts. Take a stroll down Harrison Street between Ridgeland Avenue and Austin Boulevard, and you'll see the results of the committee's efforts within the various galleries, boutiques, restaurants and healing centers. On the third Friday of every month, artists display their treasures via Gallery Walks. Three times a year, you can catch an Arts Festival Ð a great way to find unique gifts for family and friends, purchase local art for your new apartment, and enjoy Oak Park entertainment and culture.

If you're looking for character and architectural heritage, search for apartments in these three Oak Park areas: The Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie School of Architecture Historic District, the Ridgeland/Oak Park Historic District, and the Gunderson Historic District. These three districts make up a third of the housing in Oak Park, and they're included in the National Register of Historic Places. Oak Park is home to nine buildings on the National Register of Historic Buildings and many historic landmarks.

Maybe you'll have a view of a Frank Lloyd Wright building from your new Oak Park apartment. After all, he did design more buildings in Oak Park than anywhere else in the world. He was also born in Oak Park, as was Pulitzer- and Nobel-Prize winning author, Ernest Hemingway. In fact, you can visit the Victorian home on Oak Park Avenue where Hemingway was born in July of 1899. In a museum in the nearby Oak Park Arts Center, you can learn more about his life and see artifacts such as a letter from the nurse who broke his heart, inspiring him to write his novel, ÒA Farewell to Arms.Ó

There are also great apartments in the downtown area of Oak Park. Just 10 miles west of Chicago's loop in the center of Oak Park is the downtown business district. Here, you'll find diverse shopping, dining, entertainment, business services, museums and more. With two trains running alongside downtown Ð the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and the Chicago Metra Ð you can't beat a downtown Oak Park apartment for convenience.
