The Perfect Sunday

Garfield Ridge has distinction because of its unique geography compared to many other Chicago communities.

Those bodies of water as well as a small oak tree forest make the neighborhood great for outdoors lovers. There are also a number of parks in Garfield Ridge for a great, relaxing family Sunday.
