Living in Chicago’s Jefferson Park
Jefferson Park is an ideal neighborhood for families, thanks to its proximity to good schools (both public and private), great parks, well-priced homes and community activities. Its namesake park is just a half-mile away, with 7 acres, athletic fields, tennis courts, a playground, outdoor swimming pool and more. The park is also home to seasonal concerts and community events for both kids and adults.
This is also an area rich in history, which shows in its diverse real estate, from townhomes to octagon-shaped bungalows and frame-and-brick homes from the 1920s. Jefferson Park was even recently dubbed the city’s newest theater district, with several venues for the arts and entertainment options not found in other parts of Chicago.
