Getting Around East Garfield Park

Around East Garfield Park

East Garfield Park is serviced by the CTA Blue and Green Line trains and a number of CTA buses. The Eisenhower Expressway also cuts through this neighborhood, so it is very easily accessible by public transportation and personal vehicles. An all-around affordable neighborhood, East Garfield Park gets pricier the closer one gets to the Loop.

If you like soul food, barbecue or Asian cuisine, this is the neighborhood for you. East Garfield Park’s culinary scene has deep roots in family-style, traditional dining, and is a destination for those seeking some down-home cooking. And if you're craving a cheeseburger, nearby Fifth City offers much in the way of American classics.

A number of improvements happening almost daily throughout the community. The Garfield Park Community Council is working tirelessly to improve development in the area, save businesses in dire straits, rehab walk-ups for real estate, and plant community gardens. With these improvements comes an increase in population, including a trickle of younger folks who will hopefully add to this positive change and breathe new life into this growing community.

Get your fill of local fare at a soul food joint, then take the short trip over to the United Center on Madison Avenue for a sporting event or concert.

Visit the Garfield Park Conservatory, one of the largest botanical conservatories in the United States. Rain or shine, this glass-encased garden inside the park feels like a trip to a tropical paradise year-round. Then, take a brewery or distillery tour nearby and grab some spirits to relax with at home.
