Named one of Money magazine’s “Best Places to Live in America” in 2006, Orland Park is a popular village located about 25 miles southwest of Chicago. This beautiful village is connected to downtown Chicago by the Metra Rail, and several commuter parking lots are located throughout the village. With an extensive parks system and a vibrant downtown, Orland Park is one of the best suburbs for Chicagoland apartments.
The Orland Grassland covers 960 acres of open green space that includes wetlands, prairie, and oak woodlands. It is part of the Cook County Forest Preserve District, which features hundreds of miles of both paved and unpaved trails for hiking, horseback riding, jogging, and bicycling. After selecting your Orland Park apartment, you’ll be able to rent a plot in the Discovery Park Community Garden – a community garden that only allows organic pesticides and fertilizers.
Downtown Orland is divided into several areas. Main Street is home to luxury apartments and homes, businesses, and shops in a unique live-work-play community. The beautiful 143rd Street Train Station connects Main Street to downtown Chicago. Crescent Park is located at the heart of Main Street and is a popular gathering place. Orland Park Crossing is the premier shopping destination, filled with upscale shops and boutiques. Old Orland Historic District is a collection of antique stores, elegant Victorian homes, and several historic sites. The Civic Corridor is a beautiful and distinctive area set around a lake. In addition to the Orland Park Civic Center and the Village Hall, the Civic Corridor includes an amphitheater and the Franklin E. Loebe Recreation Center.
