Lake Forest Park is planned community that incorporates nature well.

In 1910, after most of the oldest trees in the area had been logged, residential development began under the auspice of Ole Hanson.

The community incorporated, as a city, in 1961. The change gave citizens more say and control of the chaotic post-war developments.
