The park features play areas for children, walking and jogging trails, open recreational areas, and seating for those who simply wish to sit and enjoy the natural beauty of the neighborhood. Palmer Square is characterized by its charming tree-lined streets, which lie within reach of a number of popular restaurants, bars and shops.
Public education is provided by the Chicago Public Schools system, which offers education to children in grades K-12.

While Palmer Square is surrounded by some of Chicago's trendiest areas for nightlife, including Bucktown and Wicker Park, the area has its own low-key entertainment district featuring locally owned restaurants, bars and bistros.
