Oak-Park is a suburb that borders the west side of Chicago in Cook County, Illinois. It has a population of approximately 50,000. Oak Park offers easy access to Chicago via public transportation such as the Chicago 'L' Blue and Green lines, CTA buses and Metra commuter rail. Oak Park has also become a popular tourist destination due to its many Frank Lloyd Wright buildings. The largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright designed residential properties in the world are found in Oak Park. Other attractions in the city include the birthplace and boyhood home of author, Ernest Hemingway, the Ernest Hemingway Museum and the three Oak park homes of "Tarzan" creator, Edgar Rice Burroughs. The village of Oak Park is also known for its long tradition of bicycling. You will find "Share the Road" signs at all major community entry points, written guidelines to help cyclists and motorists get along on the roadway and bike racks located throughout the community. Oak Park is home to a traditional Farmers' Market that is open every Saturday from June through October, 7 a.m.-1 p.m. The market offers high quality, locally grown produce as visitors browse to the sounds of live bluegrass music and the smell of freshly made donuts. An annual festival is also held each July in Oak Park to celebrate the birth of Ernest Hemingway.

Oak Park Weather & Climate

Northeast Illinois ,in the Chicago area, lies midway between the Continental Divide and the Atlantic Ocean. The climate is typically continental with cold winters, warm summers, and frequent short fluctuations in temperature, humidity, cloudiness and wind direction. Many consider the more moderate temperatures of spring and fall to be the most pleasant in this region. Lake Michigan influences the climate of northeastern Illinois. The large thermal mass of the lake tends to moderate temperatures, causing cooler summers and warmer winters. Cool lake breezes provide relief from summer heat and the lake also tends to increase cloudiness and suppress summer precipitation. Winter precipitation is enhanced by lake-effect snows that occur when winds blow from the north or northeast over the relatively warm lake, leading to increased snowfall.
