About Ravenswood Gardens

Tucked inside the boundaries of the Ravenswood neighborhood, Ravenswood Gardens is a small block of historic homes on the north side of Chicago. Just south of Lincoln Square, Ravenswood Gardens is bounded by Rockwell Avenue to the north, Montrose Avenue to the south, Campbell Avenue to the east, and the Chicago River to the west. It's a sleepy, family-oriented neighborhood just eight miles from downtown which gives folks access to the action of the city from an almost suburban area of town.

Around Ravenswood Gardens

The Ravenswood community at large has experienced massive growth in the past 15 years, going from an "up-and-coming" neighborhood to a sought-after, high value real estate area. It's easy to see why: Ravenswood Gardens is a tight-knit community comprised of single-family brick bungalows, two- and three-flats, and the courtyard-style apartment buildings that this area is known for. Condo conversions and vintage stand-alone homes tend to sell at high prices, but there are reasonable apartments and multi-family units around the area, too.

As this is a very small area, Ravenswood Gardens doesn’t have much to offer in the way of dining, but its proximity to Lincoln Square and Ravenswood proper gives residents many nearby culinary options. Vietnamese, Thai, Eastern European, Italian, Dutch, and Grecian restaurants all share the same streets, providing excellent variety for a number of small Chicago communities nearby.

Traffic on Montrose and Western. Not only have these streets become major thoroughfares for drivers, but they are also the hub for almost all public transportation in the area. The CTA's Brown Line has stops on both streets, and the 78 Bus runs east to west on Montrose Avenue. Luckily, ample parking is still available to residents, and as long as rush hour along this corridor is avoided, driving through is usually a breeze.

Pop on over to Lincoln Square to see the latest release at an old school movie theater. Grab some spicy Thai food after the flick (and make sure to BYOB), and walk off those noodles with a stroll through Welles Park.

Grab brunch outdoors at the nearby European cafe. Relax with a good library book from the local branch while listening to the bubbling of a courtyard fountain. Take a cup of coffee to go and continue getting lost in your story outdoors at nearby Sunken Gardens Park.
