I have lived in Hickory Hills my whole life. This town though very small has some hidden places to go and see. There are many little forests around and parks. Lots of neighborhoods and houses, but along Roberts Road there are many different shops and places. If i would change anything about Hickory Hills it would be Roberts Road. The road is very bumpy and unflattering to drive on at some points. The parks are well kept and clean. Kasey Meadows just got upgraded with all new equipment and a paved walkway around the whole park. The public school system is really good and also very up kept. Overall I would rate Hickory Hills a very good town to live in.

Hickory Hills is a quite small town. If you are looking to have some fun, you are going to have to drive out and go to a different town. There are a lot of restaurants, with some being really good or some being really bad. The town is mainly made up of houses, apartments, restaurants, gas stations, parks, and churches. Its an average place to live but I would rather live somewhere else where there is more action. As in action, I mean community involvement. You really don't see that many people walking about and having fun. I would rather live in an urban area.
I’ve grown up in hickory hills and I’ve always loved it. The people are great and I feel safe in this neighborhood. It is also conveniently located near almost everything. It’s only 20 minutes to downtown, so it’s not too far from the city.
