What Would You Bring To Orland Park?

Given the choice what else would you like to see in town?

We are very lucky. Orland Park offers a lot of great things for all of us to enjoy. We have great shopping, tons of restaurants, nice parks and recreation facilities but what would be on your “wish list” if you could add anything to Orland Park?

Let’s pretend you could wave a magic wand and bring anything you want to Orland Park. Regardless of anything what would it be?

Here is my “wish list” please let us know what would be on your list!

  • Indoor Golf Dome
  • Imax Theatre
  • Large Performing Arts Theatre (Like the Rialto)
  • Minor League Baseball Team and Stadium
  • Local Radio Station
  • Bring the Orland Days Parade Back on LaGrange Road
