Palos Heights families also live close to nature. They, too, have immediate access to the Palos and Sag Valley forest preserves covering 15,000 acres. In addition, their community encompasses Lake Katherine Nature Preserve, a 91-acre preserve that includes Lake Katherine, the Cal-Sag Canal, Navajo Creek, and a wetlands project. Nature paths and hiking and biking trails wind through the preserve.
An affluent community, Palos Heights offers a rich pallet of homes on large, beautifully landscaped lots. It is served by School District 218, a system noted for the quality of its award-winning education programs, facilities, and instructors. The village’s Harlem Avenue retailing area enjoys a steady flow of customers and has been beautified recently with facade and streetscape improvements.
