About Irving Park

Historically a popular residential suburb for the wealthy, Irving Park still retains much of its residential feel and charm.

Want to see what it's like on the ground? Take a Google Maps "street view" stroll through Irving Park!

When Chicago officially annexed the neighborhood in the late 1800s, Chicagoans who didn’t want to lose the luster of their “Chicago” location, but hoped for a quieter and more spacious environment flocked to Irving Park.

There’s a great variety of cultural influences that have shaped the neighborhood — Germans and Swedes arrived at the start of the 20th century, but in the 1920s were largely replaced by Poles and Russians. Later on, between 1980 and 2000, the Hispanic population increased from 9 percent to 43 percent. You can read all about Irving Park’s history here.

Irving Park is wonderful for young families and couples looking for more space and solitude.
