Brighton Park’s destiny has always been closely tied to transportation.
In the early days, horse-drawn streetcars and later electric railways attracted factories and their workers to the peaceful Southwest Side neighborhood.
As the railways expanded, so did the neighborhood, which provided convenient housing in the early part of the 20th century. Today the neighborhood includes a mix of residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Homes are mostly single-family with yards, bungalows, ranch-style homes and brick multi-unit buildings.
Residents are especially attracted to Brighton Park’s access to transportation, which includes the Stevenson Expressway and I-55. Additionally, CTA’s rapid transit Orange Line provides easy travel to Midway International Airport.
Nearby McKinley Park is the center of recreation, picnics, swimming, festivals, sports and outdoor activities for residents.
