Situated along the scenic Rock River, the City of Loves Park and Village of Machesney Park are located directly north of Rockford, the third largest city in Illinois. Our communities are part of a metropolitan environment of over 250,000 people and are among the fastest growing communities in the state. Smart Moves Software, a company whose business is recommending places to relocate, has designated these communities the best overall regions for people to live within the Rockford area.
Despite rapid growth, Loves Park and Machesney Park maintain that small town atmosphere that allows for easy contact with local government.
Both communities offer excellent police and fire protection and are served by a county wide 911 emergency telephone system.
City and Village officials are giving careful consideration to the expanding needs of their communities, including developing and maintaining beautification programs.
