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.
