About Morgan Park
As eclectic as its well-preserved architecture, Morgan Park is a quiet bedroom community on Chicago’s South Side.
Residents can find historic, Victorian single-family homes, cozy Frank Lloyd Wright prairie-style bungalows, and newer construction homes along the neighborhood’s well-maintained streets. There are also a handful of properties featured in the Chicago Architecture Center’s Open House Chicago each fall, including the Givins Castle – known as the only castle in Chicago.
Western Avenue runs through Morgan Park and features local boutiques, breweries, and dining options with noshes like deep-dish pizza, BBQ, and burgers, as well as plenty of bars and lounges for those seeking nightlife.
The Beverly Arts Center is a 40,000-square-foot neighborhood institution that houses a 400-seat theatre, art gallery, exhibition spaces, music and dance studios, art classrooms, and event spaces. The arts center is dedicated to providing arts programming, education, and entertainment to all ages and levels within the Morgan Park community and beyond. Yet another area gem is Prospect Gardens Park, which offers over three acres of green space with indoor and outdoor gardens, as well as a garden trail.
Located along the Metra rail that runs directly into Chicago’s Loop, Morgan Park provides a combined cultural appeal and convenience that’s hard to match.
