Welcome to Tinley Park!
After its centennial (1992), Tinley Park from the late 20th
century to the present has been focused on renovation of its downtown historic
district. The historic district is made up of the village’s original 1892
boundaries. In this district, landowners are encouraged to maintain the
historic edifices or to create new, historically friendly facades for otherwise
non-historic buildings built in the last 30 years.
Downtown renovation projects include the creation of a park near the Oak Park Avenue Metra train station, as well as the recent South Street Project, a multimillion-dollar project that will create more than 220 apartments and 40,000 square feet (4,000 m2) of commercial retail space.
The Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre (Tinley Park, Illinois) (formerly named “The World Music Theater”, “Tweeter Center Chicago”, and until 2015, “First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre”), an outdoor venue which seats 28,000, is located in Tinley Park.
Tinley Park was the site of the Tinley Park Lights, an anomalous multiple mass UFO sighting event in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
