The Cook County suburb of Palos Hills offers a combination of rural living and at the same time, easy access to the city of Chicago. It is located 20 miles southwest of downtown Chicago, 20 minutes away from Midway Airport and three miles from Interstate 294 (Tri-State). Metra trains from the nearby Palos Park station transport riders into downtown Chicago in about one hour. The village offers plentiful recreational and cultural activities, a variety of housing options and nearby shopping opportunities. The population of Palos Hills is 17,258 (2005). House seekers can choose from a number of housing styles including single-family dwellings, which greatly outnumber townhouses and condominiums. Many single-family homes are located on large lots in quiet neighborhoods, some boasting water frontage. Two, four and six-flat housing, townhomes and condominiums are also available. For recreation, villagers can visit the town's eight parks, including a senior park, which has a volleyball court, picnic area and tennis courts. Residents can also visit any number of small lakes and participate in fishing and boating activities. In addition, Palos Hills Golf Course is open to the community. The 45-acre site offers nine holes, practice putting and chipping areas, surrounded by prairie grasses, wildflowers, and natural wooded areas.
