The Town Of Grant Park, Illinois
Grant Park is the farthest south of the Chicago Southland communities. Quiet, richly rural, and proud of its past, Grant Park could change dramatically if the proposed third airport for the Chicago area is built at nearby Peotone. Until then, however, Grant Park is content with slow growth as new businesses and new housing developments gradually occupy its available land. Grant Park is about an hour’s drive from Chicago’s Loop during non-rush-hour periods. State Highway 1 extends northward from the community and connects with IL 394.
