Neighborhoods Community


Lincolnwood means great neighborhoods and great community. Lincolnwood is known throughout the Chicago area for its great residential neighborhoods and strong housing values. With a mature canopy of trees setting the stage, most of the Village’s housing is comprised of a varied and eclectic style of single family brick homes with private yards. Thirteen neighborhood parks add to the serenity of its neighborhoods. As testament to Lincolnwood’s excellent quality of life, about 1/3 of residents have lived in their Lincolnwood home for more than 20 years.


It is not uncommon for children once raised in Lincolnwood to return to the community to raise their own family.


Residents from all backgrounds call Lincolnwood home, where diversity is not only respected, but is celebrated. Sponsored by the Human Relations Commission, each year a community- wide 4th of July picnic is held, followed closely by the annual Lincolnwood Fest community celebration. In August, flags from more than 40 nations line Lincoln Avenue in celebration of the ancestral heritage of residents. The arrival of winter means residents of the Village’s Tower’s neighborhood bring the magic of the holiday season alive, with grand displays of holiday lights and scenes. This long neighborhood tradition of grand holiday lights and decorations has become known for some of the best displays found anywhere in the Chicago region.


“Lincolnwood means great neighborhoods and great community.”


Support for the Arts in Lincolnwood is strong, with its very own Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra and a continuous ongoing visual art exhibit by area artists in Village Hall. Led by a group of residents, a sculpture program has been initiated, bringing sculptures to various sites in the community.


Lincolnwood means great neighborhoods, great community and it is a great place to live.
