Just 24 miles south/southwest of downtown Chicago, Oak Forest, with its population of 28,000, is one of the fastest growing cities in the southwest. It is conveniently located less than half a mile from I-57 and is easily accessible by railway, expressways and downtown. It is also less than an hour from both Midway and O’Hare airports. As the city grows, the environment is such that businesses are encouraged to grow and prosper. The city’s Park District offers a full service Health and Fitness Center and 19 parks are located throughout the community. It is mostly surrounded by Cook County Forest Preserves. These extensive forest preserves provide walking, biking, and horse paths for recreational use. Oak Forest is also home to the George W. Dunne National Golf Course, which is known as one of the best public courses in the country. There is no doubt that Oak Forest will continue to develop rapidly since plans for the “Gateway Project,” a mixed-use commercial and residential development at the corner of Illinois Route 50 (Cicero Avenue) and 159th Street, were announced in 2007. The development will greatly enhance the tax base of the City and generate additional commercial interest in the Cicero Avenue Corridor. Oak Forest is truly a beautiful community that provides residents and business owners alike an opportunity to have easy access to both the excitement of the city or the relaxation of the country. Real estate options consist of single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses and land for custom building.
