West Ridge, also known as West Rogers Park, is a quiet residential neighborhood where residents share a strong sense of pride in their community. Residential real estate choices are diverse, with classic brick bungalows blending in seamlessly with vintage residences and Chicago-style two-flats and three-flats. The community’s commercial districts consist of independent, one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants providing authentic cuisines from many nations.
West Ridge also offers exceptional recreational facilities, many of which are located in a series of spectacular parks that dot the area. In addition to the serene green space of parks such as Indian Boundary Park and Warren Park, there are excellent sports facilities for golf, tennis, softball, baseball, basketball, swimming in the summer and ice skating in the winter, plus soccer and even cricket. There are also a challenging skateboard park located at Warren Park, and a small, kid-friendly zoo at Boundary Park.
Arcadia Terrace, sometimes called Rosehill, is a small residential neighborhood just west of 350-acre Rosehill Cemetery that provides residents with a quiet, suburban-style atmosphere. Immediately adjacent is Peterson Park. Another largely residential neighborhood of leafy streets and well-maintained brick and stone homes, the community is also the location of its beautiful namesake, Peterson Park, and is near two thriving colleges, North Park College and Northeastern Illinois University.
