Evergreen Park is well-known in the Chicagoland area as the home of Drury Lane Theatre, a popular dinner playhouse offering Broadway productions with nationally renowned stars.
The community is also widely known as a major retail center for its area, with Evergreen Plaza as its commercial focal point. Nearly a half-million people regularly shop at the Plaza's three anchoring stores and 150 other shops, boutiques, and restaurants. Many also stop by the stores at Westport Commons, another major shopping center.
A town without industry, Evergreen Park relies on its successful retail operations and service fields for employment opportunities. A major employer is Little Company of Mary Hospital, a much-admired community asset.
With quick access to the Dan Ryan Expressway, Evergreen Park is only five miles away from Midway Airport and 25 miles from O'Hare International. Metra commuter trains run from the village to Chicago's Loop in less than an hour.
