The Village of Tinley Park is one of the fastest-growing cities in the Midwest, and it’s easy to understand why so many people want to call Tinley Park home.
The Village 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 BusinessWeek magazine, and that title really says it all. 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.
