Introduction

Orland Park continues its wave of growth, expansion and redevelopment while maintaining its exciting progression from a historic rural community to a small Chicago suburb and ultimately to a dynamic corporate and commercial center. With a population around 60,000, Orland Park enjoys signs of affluence and sophistication.

The innovative architecture of the Village’s award-winning Orland Park Village Center shows a town brimming with impressive regional shopping and new retail centers. The residential areas boast elegant executive-style homes and the corporate office parks sparkle.

Orland Park has claimed the unchallenged title of commercial center of the Chicago Southland. The Village’s commercial arteries along LaGrange Road and 159th Street boast regional shopping centers and specialty boutiques that cater to all tastes. These thriving corridors also offer profitable business venues for a number of major national retail entities and hundreds of smaller companies. The number of retail choices continues along Harlem Avenue on the east side of the Village and stretches to include east-west 143rd and 151st Streets. This southwest sector of town offers many choices for both the local and the visiting shopper.

Schools and universities in the Orland Park area demonstrate excellence in education. Well-maintained parks and facilities continue to influence an appreciation of outdoor recreation. The Village owns more than 550 acres of park land with a diverse collection of recreational amenities from an elaborate aquatic center and modern recreation center to playgrounds, tennis courts, sports fields, ice rinks and hiking and biking trails. The Village also preserved 270 acres of natural areas through its Open Lands Program. Thousands of acres of forest and wildlife preserves, coupled with more than 20 challenging golf courses, dominate the area surrounding Orland Park.

Orland Park is the place for the upwardly mobile, the successful entrepreneur or the executive at the top of his or her game. Its unique environment has earned recognition among America’s Top 100 Best Places to Live (Money Magazine) in both 2006 and 2008, along with a number of other regional, state and national accolades.

More than just a community, Orland Park has become a desirable lifestyle to be imitated by others as they grow.
