Founded in 1873, Park Ridge has made much progress, yet retains its small hometown atmosphere and remains a wonderful place to live and work. The City is committed to providing excellence in City services in order to uphold a high quality of life. Many residents have lived here all their lives and others return because of the sense of community. There are numerous ways to get involved in the activities and organizations available, such as service groups, schools, churches, sports and civic groups, as well as through the volunteer boards, commissions and committees that are appointed by the mayor to assist the City.
Public art sculptures accent the area. Selection of artists and specific works were made and commissioned by the City’s Public Art Commission to complement the Uptown redevelopment. Project developers PRC Partners LLC sponsored the two sculptures at the Shops of Uptown to help connect the community and Chicagoland arts. "Prairie Dance," is a bronze sculpture by John Adduci and "Sky Trail," was created by Bob Emser. Both are internationally known for their work. "Celebration" by William Jaquet and "Story Teller" by David Unger were purchased by the City for the City Commons area.
