I love that Oak Forest is family orientated. It also is so close to everything! You have two malls within 20mins of you. The same goes for the 2 community colleges. It's a great neighborhood if you have children! And there is always something going on in the community.

No matter where I go, the police are visible and watching. It is amazing how they are able to stay on track and keep up with the community. When I'm at my college, and I'm walking around campus, there are always police officers circling the campus, making sure that the students are safe and out of harm's way.
I have recently moved to the community, and so far it is awesome!
