McKinley Park

Community Area: McKinley Park

Dating back to the 1830s, the Southwest Side working-class neighborhood was forged by industry, with dozens of industrial businesses moving here after the Chicago Fire of 1871.

Like industry that flocked here in the past, Chicagoans are discovering it’s a great place to build their futures with moderately priced single-family homes, tree-lined tranquility and convenient location with two stops on the CTA Orange Line, within easy reach of the city.

The 69-acre McKinley Park offers residents recreational facilities including a field house, baseball diamonds, lagoon and ice-skating rink. The park is the site of several festivals and cultural events. It’s also a place for residents to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the great outdoors right in the city.

Homes are quite affordable, including well-kept two-and four-flat buildings, ranches and bungalows, many from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Reasonably priced new construction townhomes and single-family homes are beginning to pop up as well as developers tap into the area’s unmet need for new housing. Students attend Kelly High School.

The neighborhood’s residential resurgence has not gone unnoticed by retailers that have followed including Target, Home Depot and Jewel-Osco.
