Tinley Park is a village located primarily in Cook County, Illinois, United States, with a small portion in Will County. The population was 56,703 at the 2010 census.[1] It is one of the fastest growing suburbs south of Chicago. In 2009, Tinley Park was selected by BusinessWeek[2] as the best place to raise a family in America.

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 in the very center of this historic area, near the Tinley Park Rock Island train station, and the recent "North Street Project", a multimillion-dollar project which will raise businesses and dwellings to create an area for more than 100 condominiums, over 40,000 square feet (4,000 m2) of commercial retail space, 10,000 square feet (1,000 m2) of office space, an underground parking facility, and an 11-screen theater which will seat 1,920.

Many arguably historic houses and buildings built before the 1930s have been or are being lost with the intention to re-invent the "historic" downtown center of Tinley Park. Buildings razed include the original Tinley Park one-room schoolhouse, which has been "re-created" on a site adjacent to Old Zion Church and Tinley Park Historical Society building; Central Jr. High School's former building, demolished to make room for a vacant lot; 1920s and older houses along South Street that have been demolished; and recently the Bremen Cash Store (built in the late 19th century) that exists only as stacks of bricks on pallets of which it was formerly built. Several houses along north street are also threatened by the aforementioned "North Street Project".

The First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre (formerly named "The World Music Theatre", also "Tweeter Center"), an outdoor venue which seats 28,000, is located in Tinley Park.
