If someone were to blindfold you and drop you onto Madison Street, you would assume you are in a vibrant Chicago neighborhood, not a western suburb; that’s Forest Park! This near west suburb offers all the conveniences of city living, but at a more compelling value. The heart of this town is Madison St., lined with plenty of shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and even a co-working facility!
Many homes are within walking distance of one or two CTA lines, or a Metra line. Plus, bus service is abound.
