Park City is a small city located in the Warren and Waukegan townships of Lake County, Illinois, United States, on the northern end of the Chicago metropolitan area. The population was 7,570 at the 2010 census.
Park City was incorporated in 1958 through the approval of a referendum by Park City residents. The incorporation was spearheaded by the owners of four trailer parks in the community who wanted to avoid annexation by the neighboring city of Waukegan. In the late 1970s, a federal lawsuit was filed against Park City, alleging that the city was engaging in housing discrimination against non-whites. Since that time, the City has become a multi-cultural community, accepting a wide diversity of people from different backgrounds and ethnicities.
Of the city's residential uses, two-thirds are manufactured residential housing and apartments, and one third is single-family housing. The city is split into residential, commercial and industrial zones. Park City sponsors a Chamber of Commerce to promote its growing business base.
