East Garfield Park is a community area located on
the west side of Chicago, Illinois, USA. It is part
of the Chicago West Side area. Located directly
in the path of gentrification heading westward
from the Loop, East Garfield Park has been named
one of America’s most “up and coming neighborhoods”
in the March 6, 2007 issue of Business Week.
However, since the housing market has slowed
nationwide, the gentrification of East Garfield Park
is expected to take several years.
The neighborhood is bordered by Carroll Street on
the north, Arthington and Taylor Streets on the
south, Hamlin and Independence Avenues to the
west, and Rockwell Street to the east.
Nearly 20% of the neighborhood is managed by the
Chicago Park District, with Garfield Park occupying
the northwest corner of the neighborhood. The
neighborhood is home to the Garfield Park
Conservatory, one of the largest and most
impressive conservatories in the United States.
Two of Chicago Transit Authority’s train lines,
the Blue Line and the Green Line, service this
neighborhood. The Green Line has stations at
California Ave / Lake St, Kedzie Ave / Lake St,
and Central Park Drive / Lake St. The Blue Line
has a station in the median of the Eisenhower
Expressway with entrances at both Kedzie Ave
and Homan Ave.
The neighborhood is also well-served by the CTA’s
bus service. East-west bus routes include #20
along Madison Street, #126 along Jackson Street,
and #7 along Harrison Street. In addition, the
#X20 runs eastbound along Warren Street and
westbound along Washington Street. North-south
bus routes include #94 along California Avenue,
#52 along Kedzie Avenue, and #82 along Homan
