My family will relocate to Chicago area. I am doing research of buying houses in chicago suburb. The key criteria I am looking at is safty, school quality and sports facilities.

Oak Brook catches my attention, and more specifically, I am interested in the houses in Forest Gate, a gated community. Can people help me to provide more insight of Oak Brook Village and Forest Gate. Both pros and cons of the neighborhood are very much welcome. Thank you.

Forest Gate is very close to the Oak Brook Park District and its very nice tennis / fitness facilities. Forest Gate is primarily an adult / empty nester development of zero lot line detached town homes. Pricey.

Forest Gate is age restricted. Do not look there if you have primary school-aged children or don't meet the age requirement.
