Tinley Park is a village located primarily in Cook County, Illinois, United States with a small portion in Will County. The population was 48,401 at the 2000 census, and 58,322 in the 2007 census. Tinley Park is one of the fastest growing suburbs south of Chicago.

Settlement of the area which now comprises Tinley Park began in the 1830s, around the time of the foundation of Chicago. The first settlers were German, and the village was originally established in 1853 as "Bremen".

In the late 19th century, railroads expanded rapidly, and the village happened to be located on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad line. The influence of the railroad on Bremen was so great that, in 1890, its name was changed to Tinley Park in honor of the village's first railroad station agent, Samuel Tinley, Sr. Even the village's official incorporation took place at the train depot on June 27th, 1892.

With the railroad came industry and commerce. 1905 saw the Diamond Spiral Washing Machine Company found its first factory in Tinley Park. Local businessmen established an electric utility in 1909. A bottling facility for soda was operated in Tinley Park until the 1950s. Inventor John Rauhoff developed and manufactured a waterproofing additive for cement called Ironite, later used in the construction of the Hoover Dam.

After its centennial, Tinley Park from the late 20th century to the present has been focused on renovation of its downtown historic district. The historic district is made up of the village's original 1892 boundaries. In this district, landowners are encouraged to maintain the historic edifices.

Downtown renovation projects include the creation of a park in the very center of this historic area, near the Tinley Park Rock Island train station, and the recent "North Street Project," a multimillion dollar project which will raze businesses and dwellings to create an area for more than 100 condominiums, over 40,000 square feet (4,000 m2) of commercial retail space, 10,000 square feet (1,000 m2) of office space, an underground parking facility, and an 11-screen theater which will seat 1,920. The First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, a venue which seats 28,000, is located in Tinley Park, as is one of the two Odyssey Fun World Chicago area locations.

Tinley Park was the site of the Tinley Park Lights, an anomalous multiple mass UFO sighting event in 2004 and 2005. According to a recently taken special census, Tinley Park's population is now 58,322, eclipsing the population of its neighbor to the west, Orland Park.
