Actually Mary, that is incorrect. When I lived in Park Forest from 1956 - 1977, we had easy access to the Plaza. Houses (rentals and single family homes) were built around the plaza. We walked everywhere - - especially to the Plaza. The only access problem was the distance to major state roads and expressways. But at the time, it was built as a shopping center for the community. It was intended to be far away from busy roads like I-57 and Lincoln highway. I agree, the thing that killed it was Lincoln Mall - - big, indoor, and newer retailers.
