Have lived around the Chicago land area, especially northwest suburbs and by far Orland Park has been great. I wish we moved her sooner. The family is much more happier, homes are large and very beautiful. It is close to shopping and the not that far from downtown Chicago. Some expensive homes but telling that income in this town is on the upside. Recommend this place for professionals with families and the town continues to grow and add more community events. Highly recommended!

Overall Orland Park is a very nice place to live. It's safe, it's clean it's a good area with a great school district. But one thing the OP as the people like to call it is a lack of entertainment. Sure there is a mall, a mini-golf place, and the movie theatres. But other than that Orland park lacks a certain element of entertainment or place that people can go and hang around without dropping money. When people from the OP go somewhere they immediately go downtown, which of course, is great because it's about a 40-minute drive to a huge exciting city. But that's what I believe Orland Park lacks in a city.
Orland Park is a great place to live with amazing schools! There is always something to do, shops, the park district, and even the library, offers a variety of events and activities to keep you busy year round. The park district always offers classes and events for people of all ages to stay busy. Also, the neighborhood is rather safe, and a great place for children, with many parks and events. The only thing I would change would be the amount of traffic with people from other suburbs around the mall. Especially around the holidays, driving around town could take twice as long, due to traffic.
