Get to Know Portage Park

Northwest of the Loop (Chicago's downtown), near the junction of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90) and the Edens Expressway (I-94), is the family-oriented neighborhood called Portage Park.

What to do in Portage Park

For most, Portage Park offers the right mix of affordability, convenience and familiarity. It is a tidy, stable neighborhood with less trendy restaurants and shops than others. However, most residents are proud owners of single-family homes.

Its highly accessible location, with Belmont, Montrose, Cicero and Milwaukee avenues, makes it ideal for those who commute downtown or out to the suburbs.

Known for Six Corners, a strip of storefronts at the 6-corner intersection created by Irving Park Road and Cicero and Milwaukee Avenues, Portage Park has a shopping district that is undergoing renovations and a thriving residential community to support it.

The actual park in Portage Park is found at Irving Park Road and Central Avenue. The park is a one-square-mile stretch of grass and trees with a grand, old-fashioned field house and Olympic-size swimming pool. The park provides many social and recreational opportunities for the community.

Portage Park's Distinctive Housing

The bungalow and single-family frame homes are the most common type of housing in Portage Park. It is possible to find houses that have been renovated, or that are ready to be renovated, creating many opportunities for improvement and customization.
