Overview

Wildwood is a far north Chicago community tucked inside the Forest Glen neighborhood. Its streets are tree-lined, curbless, and break from the city’s grid system, giving it a very suburban feel. It’s boundaries run from Estes Avenue to Devon Avenue, north to south; and Lehigh Avenue to Caldwell Avenue, east to west. And with Metra and CTA trains bringing residents to the city center, it still doesn’t feel all that far away from the action.

What You'll See
