Mayor Michael GlotzWelcome to Tinley Park, where living Life Amplified isn’t just a saying – it’s a way of life!

Home to the world-renowned Credit Union 1 Amphitheatre, Tinley Park is the place to go if you’re looking for great live music. Factor in all the local bars and restaurants that feature live music and the Village’s many events such as Music in the Plaza and the Downtown Tinley Block Party, and you’ll always have your own personal soundtrack playing wherever you go.

Here in Tinley Park you’ll also find beautiful parks and walking trails, superb dining, great shopping and a robust calendar of fun year-round events. You’ll come for the music and stay for everything else!

The Village of Tinley Park has a storied history. Incorporated in 1892, the area was settled primarily by emigrants from the Eastern United States, Germany, Ireland, England, Scotland and Canada beginning as early as the 1830s. As the country’s railroad empire was growing, the Village of Bremen was located on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad lines in 1853. This influenced the Village’s rapid expansion, and in 1890 the name Bremen was changed to Tinley Park, in honor of the Village’s first railroad station agent, Samuel Tinley Sr.

Whether you’re a lifelong resident or you’re just a visitor passing through, you’ll find a wealth of great information here on our website. Feel free to browse our pages and find out why Tinley Park is such a great place to live and work!
