Palos Park Real Estate

    Welcome to Palos Park! The arrival of the Wabash Railroad in the 1890s opened the community of Palos to new people. With trains arriving daily from Chicago to Palos, residents had a new accessibility to the city and its opportunities. As the population grew, the community felt the need for a local government and in 1914 the Village of Palos Park was incorporated as a commission form of government.

    Population: 4,905
