Melrose Park is characterized by tree-lined streets, well-manicured homes, diverse cultures, and a vibrant business community.
The once predominantly Italian-American community now celebrates a variety of cultures with local festivals. Melrose Park is home to one of the longest running religious festivals in the Chicago area, the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The community also hosts HispanoFest, a fundraising event that brings together culture, ethnic foods, and entertainment from all around Latin America every year.
Located 14 miles from Chicago, the village continues to expand, attracting more businesses, and homebuyers. Chicago Magazine named Melrose Park one of the best locations for first-time homebuyers.
