Loves Park is a city located in Winnebago County, in the U.S. state of Illinois, and is currently home to a population of about 24,000. First founded in the early 20th century by a businessman out of Rockford, Loves Park has, for most of its life, been a relatively small and quiet town within the Rockford Metropolitan Statistical Area. The city is located just a few miles north of Rockford, which is the anchor of the larger Rockford metro area and sees the majority of motor traffic and interest from potential new residents or businesses. Loves Park has remained a small but bustling community within the Rockford area and has grown at a rapid pace, particularly after 1950, when the city was just 2.7 square miles and home to under 5,000 residents.

Auto Transport Tips to and from Loves Park
Loves Park is a small city in a relatively small metro area – the Rockford MSA is home to over 345,000 residents, and while the city is the third-largest by population in Illinois its metro area really isn’t all that big, at least in comparison to others across the country. This makes the Rockford area less popular among auto transport companies, and it’s already not that popular among customers, which can have a huge influence on your total price. At the same time, it’s not like Rockford is the hardest place to ship to or from; it is the third-largest city in Illinois, after all.
When it comes to determining how easy a place is to ship a vehicle into or out of, a good thing to look at, aside from overall size and population density, is how easily accessible it is, and in this Loves Park is quite easy for carriers to get to and from since it sits right along I-90. I-90 is a major east-west interstate that runs from one coast to another and is used extensively by car shipping companies to get around the northern parts of the United States. In the east – basically, anything from the Midwest to the Atlantic Ocean – sees a lot more traffic than west of the Dakotas due to more people living in the area – I-90 runs through the southern Great Lakes region of the country, which includes a lot of major cities not just on I-90 itself but also easily accessible from other interstates that spur off of I-90 or that simply intersect it.
