Living in Orland Park and Southwest Cook County
Our law firm has a branch office in Orland Park. Now, the Village of Orland Park isn’t that big: It covers less than 20 square miles, but it’s been around for a while. In fact, it’s a part of Cook County that has been an incorporated municipality since 1892.
Located 25 miles southwest of Chicago, it’s easier to envision it as being midway between Chicago and Joliet. According to 2016 Census Bureau estimates, around 59,000 Illinoisans call Orland Park home.
It’s a commuter town. Many of the residents of Orland Park commute to jobs along I-80, US45 or Illinois Route 43, as well as taking the Metra commuter rail system. They commit to those commuter hours so they can enjoy the quality of life that living in Orland Park provides them and their families.
It’s easy to understand why.
For one thing, Orland Park is a peaceful place. In 2016, Orland Park ranked 13th in the list of the 50 Safest Towns in Illinois, as compiled by Background Checks.org using Illinois Public Records statistics.
For another, it’s a pretty and prosperous town. Orland Park is an affluent suburb of Chicago with over 60 parks and 300 acres of open green space that comprise the Village Open Lands of Orland Park program.
There are community garden plots available for residents and non-residents alike in Orland Park. Birders delight in the Orland Grassland open space between 167th and 179th Streets, renowned as one of Cook County’s top birding sites.
The town has its own water park at Orland Park’s Aquatic Center in Centennial Park.
Centennial Park is also the place for locals to enjoy fishing or paddleboating on Lake Sedgewick, and boat launches are open on the lake as the weather permits. During the winter, Centennial Park hosts its annual Winter Wonderland, with weekly bonfires and free ice skating.
Lake Sedgewick is a 75-acre lake serving the residents of Orland Park. It has a boardwalk, gazebo and outdoor amphitheater; as well as nature trails and hiking paths. In the warmer months, kayaks and pedal boats can be rented. Additionally, fishing enthusiasts can go after bluegill/sunfish, carp, largemouth bass, crappie, bullhead, northern pike and walleye.
If you are in the area during the first part of June, you can take part alongside some of the world’s best log rollers in the annual National Log Rolling Open Tournament held at Lake Sedgewick and hosted by Orland Park.
All this natural beauty isn’t by happenstance. It’s a proactive undertaking of Orland Park’s city leaders.
Long-range planning for the municipality includes its Smart Living Orland Park program. Smart Living ties together residential and commercial efforts to sustain conservation and the area’s natural ecology.
City planners are also dedicated to pedestrian safety with all new development being required to have sidewalks on both sides of the street. And the area is working to be even more pedestrian- and bicyclist-friendly with 25 miles of dedicated off-street paths and another 16 miles of on-street paths within the city limits.
The community goal is to have 70 miles of walking and bike paths available to Orland Park residents.
If you are a dedicated bicyclist, it’s an exciting undertaking. There is a plan in the works to have Orland Park’s current bikeway system with its connection to the Tinley Creek Forest Preserve trail system and Palos Heights/Lake Katherine trail system connect to the regionally planned Calumet Sag Trail, and thereafter to the Illinois & Michigan Trail. When it’s finished, it will allow someone to ride a bike from Orland Park east as far as the shores of Lake Michigan.
We’re delighted to be a part of this wonderful community!
