Getting Around McKinley Park

Around McKinley Park

Much of McKinley Park was developed in the 1950s and 60s, though newly renovated lofts can be found along Pershing Road. Buildings on Archer and Ashland Avenues also offer more recent renovations that are convenient for public transit commuters.

Head down Archer Avenue to experience McKinley Park’s unique history through food. From classic diners to taquerias, there is a host of popular restaurants down this street that runs through the entire neighborhood. A laid-back atmosphere makes many of these eateries perfect for a casual night out or a quick bite during the day.

There are a lot of small side streets with residential complexes and single-family homes. Expect a great deal of vintage architecture with some newer areas interspersed. Farther from the neighborhood's major streets, Ashland and Archer Avenues, the neighborhood has a quiet, suburban-like feel.

Casual bars and bistros are social hot spots in the neighborhood. Much of the weekend nightlife scene is diverted to neighboring Bridgeport, leaving McKinley Park relatively calm. A few local taverns and grills are good options for a night out with friends and family, while music and late-night specials can be found on Ashland Avenue.

One of the area's most well-known attractions is the neighborhood's namesake park. Tucked away on the southwest side, this beautiful recreational area has natural wildlife and water features that make for a wonderful afternoon outdoors. Enjoy a game of basketball or a picnic in this surprisingly scenic city park.
