About Morton Grove
With 20 percent of its land set aside for open space, Morton Grove offers an abundance of recreational amenities including a historic bike trail, the Cook County Forest Preserve and numerous award-winning parks.
A variety of housing choices can be found throughout the community, from ranch homes to Chicago-style bungalows. Adding to its charm are tree-lined streets, local shops and eateries and annual events that highlight Morton Grove’s tight-knit community.
Students are served by several excellent school districts. High school students attend Niles West High School or Niles North High School located in neighboring Skokie; or Maine East High School in Park Ridge.
Community pride is especially evident in the summer, when residents come together to celebrate Morton Grove Days – a popular festival with carnival rides, live entertainment and a Fourth of July parade. Morton Grove also shines when it comes to convenience, with the village offering direct access to downtown Chicago via Metra’s Milwaukee District North Line and the Edens Expressway.
