About Chicago Ridge
Chicago Ridge is known for celebrating its residents.
Among the village’s many community programs are Lunch with a Cop, which is designed to enhance the relationship between police officers and children; various school programs to engage the community’s youth; summer activities offered by the Chicago Ridge Park District; and an Honor Wall that recognizes residents who serve in the military.
Chicago Ridge is also home to one of the area’s most anticipated summer traditions: RidgeFest. The annual event brings delicious food from restaurant row, live entertainment, and hand-crafted items from local merchants. Voted “Best Neighborhood Festival” by the Daily Southtown, it’s a favorite gathering among locals and visitors alike.
Those looking to tap into their competitive side should look no further than the nearby Stony Creek Golf Course or Ball Fore, where they can play a game of miniature golf or hit the batting cages. Meanwhile, those in search of shopping and entertainment have plenty of options at the Chicago Ridge Mall, which features more than 130 stores, restaurants, and a movie theater.
Real estate in Chicago Ridge consists of single-family homes, townhomes, and condominiums. With a train station along Metra’s SouthWest Service line, the village offers easy access to downtown Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
