Family oriented, affordable, and convenient, Melrose Park is a community 12 miles west of downtown Chicago. Occupying 4.2 square miles, the 23,000 residents here enjoy that they can get into Chicago easily, but are very happy with the amenities provided by the surrounding local resources and businesses.
In Melrose Park, you will find a lot of Chicago-style brick bungalows, split-level, and two-story homes, as well as apartments. It’s a great place for a first-time homebuyer, and you’ll quickly realize why many people choose to live here. There’s plenty of distraction in town, especially in the Veterans Park district, where the Sports Museum and Multi-Sports Complex offers racquetball, a fitness center, and outdoor batting cages.
Residents have plenty of shopping centers to choose from, such as the Melrose Crossing Shopping Center, Winston Park Plaza, and the Jewel-Target Center. Triton College’s Performing Arts Center and Cox Auditorium is the hub for culture, with concerts and events held regularly. And the trip to Chicago is just minutes by car or train. What more could you ask for?
Best of all, your children have at their fingertips a great education. You’ll have access in district 89, Addams, Melrose Park, or Stevenson Elementary (all K-8); Scott Elementary 83, Mannheim Middle School 83 and Grant Elementary 88; and Proviso West High School 209 and Proviso East High School 209.
