Humboldt Park

Humboldt Park

Chicago Park District’s “Crown Jewel” is Humboldt Park- this lovely acreage of green riding along the parkway-ed boulevards. Brownstone houses, small 2-3 flat buildings, and historic worker’s cottages surround the park that features a beach, lagoon, historic field houses, and tons of trails.

This great neighborhood is accessible by trains, buses, and automobiles- about a mile from the Kennedy and just off North Ave. (Rt. 64). Not far from Wicker Park, Logan Square, and West Town, Humboldt Park is a vital extension of these fun neighborhoods, shining with a vibrancy itself.

Humboldt Park has had a long history in Chicago, being a true melting pot of cultures in Chicago- home to Germans, Russians, Puerto Ricans, Polish, and Italians. That still rings true today with its open-minded attitude and flourish of arts within the community!!
