Where to Live
Douglas Park's small boundaries mean that you won't find a sprawling list of options like you would in other Chicago neighborhoods. A well-informed search would probably begin on Roosevelt Road or Ogden Avenue, the neighborhood's main thoroughfares. If you can't find a home that's quite in those areas, see if something in the bordering Lawndale fits the bill. You'll still be nice and close to your intended area.
Where to Eat
Douglas Park has a great number of options for foodies interested in moving into the area. The best place to search for your next meal would be the neighborhood's main streets: Roosevelt Road, California Avenue, Ogden Avenue, etc. Here, you'll see locals lining up around the block for fried chicken or piling burritos with sour cream and guacamole.
What You'll See
The actual Douglas Park is the crown jewel of this area -- it must be pretty good to have given an entire neighborhood its name. You'll probably catch residents and Lawndale neighbors making their way to the extra-large expanse for a stroll. Tourists will also make an appearance to check out the Lagunitas Brewing Company, which houses a brewery and taproom.
Friday Night Fun
Crowds are sure to gather at Lagunitas Brewing Company, as we mentioned above. Douglas Park has more to offer than this one hopping brewery, though. You probably know where to look by now too: the more bustling streets like California, Roosevelt and Ogden will give you the bars and dives you seek.
The Perfect Sunday
A perfect Chicago Sunday is one without wintry weather or chilly winds, right? That means your perfect Sunday in Douglas Park will be spent exploring the park at the neighborhood's heart. It's pretty big and will require a handful of trips to cover all of its well-manicured grounds. If you get lucky, you could even spend a Sunday watching a music festival unfold there too.
