Oak Park is Green

Oak Parkers take pride in biking around the village. Many streets have bike lanes. The Housing Center has even been recognized for the staff’s commitment to biking to work in the Commuter Bike Challenge.

The Housing Center is the proud owner of an electric-powered vehicle that can seat 4 people and troll around town at 25 mph. For local tours around the community, this neighborhood vehicle is a great option to help with emissions and road congestion.
