Oak Park Named To 10 Best Towns for Families

Another feather in our cap? Yep, this time from 'Family Circle' magazine.

Take a bow, village planners, politicians, residents and local business people.

Oak Park has once again been received accolades as one of America's best places for families.


The designation comes from Family Circle magazine, which selected ten American communities based on criteria like "affordable homes, quality schools, access to health care, green space, low crime rate and financial stability."

Oak Park placed 10th on the list. Here's the page.

The magazine's short piece quotes residents Diane and Chris Fascione, who are raising two of their adopted teen children here. Says Diane: "It's kind of a utopia."

If Diane Fascione had birthed her children would the article have stated "....raising two of their biological teen children here." Just wondering.....I highly doubt that Mrs. Fascione introduces her kids as my "adopted" children.
