These forums were born in 1996. The Worldwide Web was in its startup phase and a resident saw an opportunity. He registered the domain name ForestPark.Com and launched a website to provide local information and advertising for local businesses. He started an email listserve through the site so residents could exchange information and discuss local issues. The site also had a guest book for visitors to leave comments, messages etc.

The first forum software was installed in 2000. It was a sub-section of the main site, but quickly became its most visited feature. The forum platform options evolved quickly and in 2003 the site switched over to the WebWiz product. In 2005 the domain name ForestPark.Com was sold and the forums' new domain became forestparkforums.com.

Any registered user can start a topic on any subject they find interesting. As the village became more political, so did the forums. It has been around, in one form or another, since 2000. It has been maligned and put down by a select clique of villagers, but has ebbed and peaked with consistency. There is a wealth of information in the many topics on these forums. It is a good resource for news and opinion. It will remain so for years to come.
