Overview

It’s easy to understand why so many people want to call Tinley Park home. As one of the fastest-growing cities in the Midwest, the Village of Tinley Park is ideally located in the southwest suburbs of Chicago, where residents can find that perfect balance of small-town charm and big-city amenities. With a population of approximately 57,000, the Village is not exactly a small town, but it maintains the sense of community found in towns with much smaller populations.

Recently, Tinley Park was named “The Best Place to Raise Your Kids in Illinois” by Business Week magazine. According to the magazine, “Safety, along with school test scores, air quality, and affordability, were weighted especially highly in this year’s calculations. But we also considered job growth, diversity, and amenities such as museums, parks, and theaters.”

Real estate research blog Movoto recently released a study naming Tinley Park the ninth-best “small” city in America in which to move.The study utilized demographic and other data the site collected from about 100 U.S. cities with populations of less than 60,000. Six criteria in total were surveyed, including cost of living, crime, median household income, unemployment rate, median home price and homes for sale per capita.

Tinley Park is a great place to call home or just to come for a visit. With leading entertainment venues, a thriving business community, top-rated schools and an ideal location, it’s tough to beat life in Tinley Park.

The Village of Tinley Park includes four public elementary school districts – Kirby School District 140, Community Consolidated School District 146, Summit Hill Elementary School District 161 and Elementary School District 159.

The town also includes three parochial Pre-K through 8 elementary schools: Catholic School St. George, Trinity Lutheran, affiliated with the LCMS and Southwest Chicago Christian School of Tinley Park.

Victor J. Andrew High School (Consolidated High School District 230) and Tinley Park High School (Bremen Community High School District 228) are both secondary schools located in Tinley Park. A small portion of Tinley Park students go to Lincoln-Way East High School.
