When you buy from local stores, professional service firms, and restaurants, more of your money stays close to home; supporting the parks, recreation centers, libraries and other amenities that make Park Ridge a great place to live. Small or large, local businesses also strengthen the community by providing employment to people in our area.  If you're looking to relocate your business, Park Ridge is ideally located 14 miles northwest of downtown Chicago and close to O'Hare Airport, major expressways, CTA and Metra trains. One of the most desirable northwest suburban communities, Park Ridge is a safe, well managed, forward-looking City with good schools, parks and recreational facilities. It also offers historic hometown charm and many active, enthusiastic volunteer organizations -- including the Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce which also supports the Park Ridge Community Fund. Come for a visit and see why it's a wonderful place to live and work!
