Park Ridge is located about 15 miles northwest of downtown Chicago. It’s part of Cook County and is considered to be part of Chicago’s metropolitan area, despite its close-knit, small-town feel.
Park Ridge borders three far north side neighborhoods: Edison Park, Norwood Park, and O’Hare. It’s named after the nearby Park Ridge bridge and is a popular area among folks who commute in and out of the city on a regular basis.
The cost of living in Park Ridge is quite a bit higher than some of Chicago’s other neighborhoods (as well as other neighborhoods in other parts of the country). This is a beloved area that has many amenities and provides easy access to a lot of job opportunities in downtown Chicago.
The average cost of a home in Park Ridge is a little less than $450,000. The majority of homes in this area are moderately sized single-family homes, with a few townhomes and smaller properties mixed in.
There are plenty of transportation options in Park Ridge, which makes sense considering its proximity to downtown Chicago. This area has its own Metra stop called Dee Road Station, which is located on the Union Pacific Northwest Line. CTA bus transit and Pace bus transit are available, too.
For those who travel by car, Park Ridge is located close to I-90, I-94, and I-294. The uptown part of the area is very walkable, too.
As for air travel, it’s easy to get to O’Hare from Park Ridge. After just a two-mile drive, you can quickly be on a flight to anywhere in the world.
There are two school districts that serve the residents of Park Ridge: Park Ridge-Niles School District 64 and Maine Township High School District 207.
District 64 is home to five public K-6 elementary schools, as well as two middle schools and Jefferson School, which includes a special needs preschool meant for children aged three and four.
District 207 is home to three high schools: Maine South High School, Main East High School, and Main West High School, all of which are highly rated and well-respected. This district also houses Frost Academy, which provides a therapeutic educational environment for students who need help in academic, vocational, and social/emotional learning.
Park Ridge is full of opportunities for the area’s residents to get out and get active.
One of the most popular annual events is Taste of Park Ridge, a family-friendly event that includes live music, food from tons of different vendors, and activities for kids. Halloween Hoopla happens every year in the fall, too, and features a variety of fall-themed activities.
Uptown Park Ridge features a variety of shops and restaurants for residents and visitors to check out. The Shops of Uptown is one of the most popular retail areas, featuring a Trader Joe’s grocery store and several luxury fitness studios, including OrangeTheory and PureBarre.
