Founded in 1967 as a planned community, University Park was designed for quality of life. University Park boasts a championship golf course, a 30-acre lake, one of the largest industrial parks in the state of Illinois, and is home to Governors State University a 4-year University.
University Park is a pleasant place to live. We feature a broad mix of housing from single family residential to condominium, and apartment complexes. The Village features hiking trails and winding walking and biking paths. Quality education, affordable homes, and a close-knit, active community also make University Park a good place to raise a family.
University Park’s strategic location is just 30 miles south of Chicago’s downtown loop area and is a key factor in its economic development potential and will continue to be so in the years ahead. The Village is served by multiple nearby interstate highways which allow for the combination of rural beauty and easy accessibility.”
