Urban Forest

One of the many reasons I love my neighborhood is because of all the trees & greenery. Oak Park considers itself an "Urban Forest" and lives up to that title as you can see from the photos below. The trees are planted so thickly on every block that you can't see most of the houses, or in the photo below, the train tracks at the end of the road. I feel like it really creates a peaceful and beautiful respite from the noise and chaos of downtown Chicago. Working downtown every day makes me especially thankful for having such a beautiful place to come home.
