Norwood Park

Norwood Park, an established neighborhood in Chicago’s Far Northwest Side, is best known for it’s low crime rate, great schools, and charming homes.

Located north from Foster to Devon, and east from Harlem to Milwaukee, Norwood Park has properties built as early as the mid-1800s, all in great condition. Newer brick, Georgian, ranch, Tudor and Cape Cod homes add to this neighborhood’s charm and character. In 2000 the average sale price of a single-family home in Norwood Park was $225,000.

Transportation is easy for Norwood Park residents. They have access to CTA’s blue line train that go downtown, and get to O’Hare airport in 10 minutes. Norwood Park also provides easy access to Metra’s Union Pacific train line, which also goes to Chicago’s Downtown area, and The Kennedy Expressway (I 90/94).

Residential Parking Permits

Chicago’s Residential Parking Permit program is designed to restrict parking on designated residential streets during specified hours, except for the residents of that street, guests of the residents or those who provide a service to the residents. This program helps to ensure that residents of densely populated areas have reasonable access to parking near their residences. Cars parked in violation of this ordinance are ticketed.

The City of Chicago does not mess around. The city has a dillignet parking patrol staff that will ticket you if you are in a spot where a permit you don’t have is required. All spots that require permits are marked with white street signs. Please look out for them!

For more information, contact the city clerk at 312-744-6861 or email We also recommend that you ask your Real Estate Agent, Leasing Agent, or Land Lord about parking permit requirements in your area.
