In the southwest suburbs of Chicago sits a gorgeous, peaceful community with stunning family style homes right in Mokena. 

Only 40 minutes southwest of downtown Chicago, you don’t have to travel far at all to experience all that Chicago has to offer while having a more relaxing lifestyle with more affordable homes. 

Mokena is a picture perfect neighborhood surrounded by other beautiful bedroom communities such as Frankfort, New Lenox, Tinley Park, and more. 

Today we’ll be talking about just a few of the many reasons why purchasing a new home in the family-friendly community of Mokena is a great choice for the southwest suburbs of Chicago. 

Family-Friendly Amenities 

As Mokena is primarily a residential neighborhood, the local amenities are mainly centered around several parks and sports facilities. 

Many of the parks include beautiful green spaces perfect for the kids and even for the entire family to go out on a sunny day and explore. 

Parks such as Mokena Main Park, Hecht Park, Green Meadows Park, and many more paint the community as beautiful areas to bring the kids and the dogs out to play. 

There is also a large complex which includes many fields and playgrounds, as well as baseball diamonds, tennis and basketball courts, golf courses, and much more which is a great spot for kids and adults alike to enjoy. 

Odyssey Fun World is a great big theme park with many rides and attractions to enjoy which is right nearby along with some preserves and then shops for all your local conveniences. 

One Of A Kind Homes 

Mokena homes for sale are mainly made up of large-sized single-family homes with large, sprawling yards beautifully maintained and lush for the kids to go out and play on. 

The most prominent style is the mid-century suburban style with arched windows and high vaulted entryways and ceilings which make the homes even larger and grander. 

Many properties for sale include farmland which allows for many residential developments and provides some beautiful scenery as the lots are large rather than tightly packed houses lined up one by one. 

Excellent Schools In A Peaceful Community 

As Mokena is not a particularly large, but smaller, charming community, there are some common schools available for the children that are widely popular and served by Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210.

Lincoln-Way High School is the high school in the community whereas Mokena Elementary School, Mokena Intermediate School, and Mokena Junior High are served by four other school districts. 

Whereas for post-secondary, Joliet Junior College is a widely popular choice for the local residents in the area. 

Many of the schools are even within walking distance depending on where exactly your home may be located, or kids can get picked up by the bus in the community. 

Nonetheless, Mokena is a warm, inviting community that is tight-knit with neighbors and seen as incredibly safe so you don’t have to worry about your children exploring.
