In a vibrant community built around one of the best parks in the Chicago area, many families consider Humboldt Park home. The community takes its name from the 207 acres of stunning natural beauty it grew up around, and over the years it became known not only for its large Puerto Rican population, but also for its many attractions from local dining opportunities to the trails and museums in the area. With vibrant murals along its streets, Humboldt Park real estate sits in an area where urban charm and a culture rooted in a proud Latino tradition blend together to create something truly beautiful. The center of this neighborhood culture is known as the Paseo Boricua where the scent of carne guisada wafts down the streets from the many Latin cuisine restaurants, and the Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture offers a tribute to the community’s deeply rooted heritage.
Families who call Humboldt Park home not only have a strong appreciation for Puerto Rican arts and culture, but they are also drawn to the stunning beauty of the park itself. Extensive rose beds in the area are a feast for the eyes as they fill the air with their soft scent, and the scenery along the meandering river relaxes the soul and rejuvenates the mind. The tennis courts and baseball fields are available for everyone to enjoy, and inland beaches along the river as well as the wealth of bike paths provide further options for outdoor recreation. Other ways of enjoying the unique beauty of the area include the Humboldt Park Boathouse, where guests can eat their lunch while watching the ducks on the pond, or the Humboldt Park Fieldhouse, which not only offers a banquet room but a gym and fitness center as well. In the summer months, the lagoon by the Fieldhouse is filled with water that washes up against a patch of sand known as Humboldt Park Beach. Between the wealth of outdoor recreational opportunities, and the many options for shopping and dining, there’s something for everyone in the Humboldt Park community.
There are a wealth of educational opportunities in this unique neighborhood. Students who live in Humboldt Park have access to both Chopin and Laura S. Ward elementary schools, as well as Orr and Marshall Metropolitan high schools. Families also have the option of sending their pupils to the local charter schools in the area like Rowe-Clark Math and Science Academy and Association House High School. Humboldt Park Montessori school and Polaris Charter Academy are also charter school options open for children who live in the neighborhood, and the United Neighborhood Organization offers the Humboldt Park School for interested students. Aside from public school educational opportunities, there are also Roman Catholic private schools in the area run by the Archdiocese of Chicago, for families who are looking for a private education option. With so much to offer its residents, it’s easy to see why the future looks so bright for the Humboldt Park community!
