Jefferson Park

Community Area: Jefferson Park

Located east of Norwood Park and Dunning, and west of Sauganash, Albany Park and Irving Park, Jefferson Park is a tree-lined neighborhood that puts residents in easy reach of the Kennedy Expressway as well as CTA and Metra trains. Originally home to a significant portion of Chicago's Polish community, the area has had an influx of new residents in recent years, particularly among city dwellers looking for an alternative to the suburbs.

Bungalows and single-family wood-frame homes dominate Jefferson Park, though there is quite a bit of new construction available including condominiums and town homes. The area is still quite affordable, although home prices have been steadily on the rise in recent years.

Neighborhood parks, including Wilson Park and namesake Jefferson Park, offer many sporting and recreational opportunities as does nearby Portage Park, one of the largest neighborhood parks in the city. The community boasts a number of family-owned restaurants, including the Gale Street Inn, which has been a favorite among rib lovers for more than 40 years.
