About Wildwood

Wildwood is a pocket neighborhood of the larger Forest Glen area on the northern border of Chicago. This neighborhood’s streets are tree-lined, curbless, and break from the city’s grid system, giving it a very suburban feel. With Metra and CTA trains bringing residents to the city center, Wildwood doesn’t feel all that far away from the action.

Getting Around Wildwood

Around Wildwood

Wildwood has some of the most sought-after real estate in the city, boasting an array of home styles from Georgians and Colonials to English Tudors and ranches. Many homes are also situated on large lots that are expertly manicured. A Metra train station at the southern point of the neighborhood provides rides into the city and out to the suburbs.

Being so close to West Rogers Park and Devon Avenue, Wildwood residents have access to some of the best Indian food in the state. Middle Eastern fare dominates the area, but there are many traditional pubs and bars for those looking for a brew and some standard comfort food.

Trees abound—Wildwood is home to a number of massive trees that tower above the area’s homes. This is due in part to the fact that this neighborhood is the entrance to the Bunker Hill Forest Preserve, a 340-acre wooded oasis that includes the starting point of the 18-mile North Branch Bike Trail.

Get wild and rent a room at the karaoke bar after treating yourself to some world-class curry dishes. Or, grab some Chicago-style pizza and hole up at the nearest pub to watch a game and socialize with the locals.

Spend a day in the neighborhood’s expansive green spaces. Play catch or tennis, ride bikes, or take a stroll with a neighbor. Hit up one of the many bakeries and sweet shops in the area. Wildwood offers lots to do on a relaxing weekend afternoon.
