Message from the Chamber NORWOOD PARK CHAMBER OF COMMERCE WE ARE NORWOOD PARK!


We are often called “One of Chicago’s most desirable Northwest Side neighborhoods”! For a reason!


We are one of the most historic communities in the area, dating back to the early 19th century. We are home to Chicago’s oldest residence - The Noble Seymour Crippen House (1868). We pride ourselves in restoring Norwood Park’s historic train depot (1906), which serves as a Metra station today. Norwood Park itself is a neighborhood of beautifully streetscaped areas. The oval shaped Circle and pastoral gardens add to the Victorian style architecture’s charm.


Norwood Park’s major street artery, Northwest Highway which has, for the last two decades, lost many retail businesses - is making a comeback! In 2011 we welcomed, among other business additions, a brand new restaurant, The Dish and a brand new shopping mall, The 6060 Plaza. Several new businesses will have grand openings in 2012. Norwood Park continues to be one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods to live and raise families. It is a neighborhood with tremendous business potential - for years to come!


IT IS A PLACE WHERE HISTORY MEETS THE PRESENT!
