Looking to live in a hip urban neighborhood but don’t want to deal with some of the hassles of big city living? Check out Oak Park’s Arts District. The Arts District spans Harrison Street, from Austin Boulevard to Ridgeland Avenue and has a unique artist vibe.
Harrison Street’s “art district” boasts a variety of artists’ studios and galleries, distinctive boutiques, unique restaurants and specialty businesses that make the area lively. Dance studios, record shops, art classes, local theater, yoga, meditation classes, coffee cafes and more all abound within the nine blocks of the Harrison Street Arts District.
The district’s business association plays an important role in the neighborhood by actively planning year long events that add vibrancy and make the Arts District a highly desirable place to live. Monthly gallery walks, holiday events, & summer street fairs are regular events that provide fun and entertainment right in your own back yard all year long.
