Park Ridge

Although it borders Chicago’s northwest edge, Park Ridge is a decidedly suburban community. The picturesque suburb is known for its small-town charm, which is just one reason why many residents have lived here their entire lives.
 
Park Ridge boasts a variety of unique shops, popular restaurants, and charming parks in the city’s vibrant Uptown area. Newer buildings blend seamlessly with historic ones, including the art deco Pickwick Theatre – a movie theater and venue that is on the National Register of Historic Places.
 
In addition to free summer concerts presented by the Park Ridge Fine Arts Symphony, residents have plenty of events to enjoy throughout the year. The Taste of Park Ridge takes place during the summer, and the community also has a farmers market that is open through October.  
 
Commuters have convenient access to downtown Chicago with two commuter rail stations on Metra’s Union Pacific Northwest Line, as well as access to major expressways and O’Hare International Airport.
