Jefferson Park

Community Area: Jefferson Park

Home to one of the area’s largest transportation hubs, Jefferson Park is known as “The Gateway to Chicago.” The CTA Blue Line, Metra trains, and buses meet in the neighborhood along Milwaukee Avenue, making it easy for residents to get to surrounding communities and O’Hare International Airport.

The tight-knit community comes together for a variety of festivals at the neighborhood’s namesake park, which spans seven acres. During the summer, Jeff Fest brings local and national musical acts to the park along with food and activities. Other annual events include the Taste of Polonia, drawing a large crowd at the Copernicus Center. Residents also enjoy the Ed Paschke Art Center, which houses the Chicago native’s artwork, as well as a number of restaurants, some of which have been favorites among locals for decades.

Jefferson Park has seen an influx of new residents over the years, particularly among city dwellers looking for an alternative to the suburbs. The tree-lined neighborhood includes a range of housing choices, from mid-century single-family homes to new-construction condominiums.
