Oak Park, Illinois is a suburb bordering the west side of the City of Chicago in Cook County, Illinois, United States. Oak Park has easy access to downtown Chicago (the Chicago Loop) thanks to public transportation such as the Chicago 'L' Blue and Green lines, CTA buses, and Metra commuter rail. As of the 2000 census, the area had a total population of 52,524. A census estimate for 2003 showed that the population had dipped to 50,824.

The population of Oak Park boomed during the 1870s, with Chicago residents resettling in the suburb following the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The Village of Oak Park was formally established in 1902, following a referendum.

Oak Park has a history of alcohol prohibition. From the time of its incorporation, no alcohol was allowed to be sold within its village limits. This law was relaxed in 1973, when restaurants and hotels were allowed to serve alcohol. The law was further loosened in 2002, when select grocery stores were given permission to sell packaged liquor. Oak Park's expansive homes, parks and an excellent school system have continued to position the village very high among the suburbs of Chicago. Recently, Oak Park demographics have shifted from long-term, more conservative residents, to younger, urban, more liberal residents.

The division between old and new residents was demonstrated by a formal survey of residents taken in 2004,[1] which found that more than half of current residents had lived in Oak Park for less than ten years, and one-third had lived in the village fewer than five.

The village has attempted to balance historic preservation and economic development. For example, a pedestrian mall on Marion Street in the center of the village was opened to traffic, using brick pavers similar to the original early 20th century street and bluestone sidewalks, intended to highlight the historic character of the area. Even the lighting fixtures were chosen to evoke the look of streetlights that lined the street in the 1920s. The effort to remove the mall from downtown Oak park has won acclaim throughout the region from urban planners and preservationists alike. [2] Wright's home in Oak Park.

Oak Park also is a popular tourist destination in the Chicago area, as many come to view the many Frank Lloyd Wright buildings found throughout the village. The largest collection of Wright-designed residential properties in the world is in Oak Park. Other famous attractions include Ernest Hemingway's birthplace home and boyhood home, the Ernest Hemingway Museum, the three Oak Park homes of Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Oak Park has become famous in the Chicago area and throughout Illinois for its rather impressive Oak Park River Forest High School[3], which is also the public education school for the bordering village of River Forest. The school is known for its large number of successful alumni, honored teachers, and advanced educational programs.
