The La Grange Highlands is an unincorporated residential community located immediately south of the Village of La Grange and west of the City of Countryside. It is in Lyons Township, Cook County, IL. The Highlands covers an area of about 600 acres. It is one of the largest unincorporated areas in Cook County. The community received its name "Highlands" because of it's high elevation. It is 690 ft. above sea level, 90 feet higher than Chicago's loop, and 20 ft. higher than the Village of La Grange. Most of the land in the area is developed. Highlands homes are predominately situated on half acre lots and there are very few parcels of vacant lot remaining.
The association encourages residents to be good neighbors by observing zoning ordinances, street signs, and speed limits in the area, and as always, controlling their pets.
