Jackson Park

Jackson Park: An oasis on the South Side

Few who savor sprawling wooded parkland, wide sandy beaches or the opportunity to regularly stroll to one of the world's most fascinating museums, could help but be drawn to the Jackson Park community on Chicago's South Side.

Not even the leaden skies and single-digit frigidity of a recent January afternoon could hide the fact that Jackson Park feels like an urban resort district, tailor-made for hot, sunny days.

Jackson Park residents can also walk, jog or in-line skate through the namesake park, hit the links at the 18-hole Jackson Park Golf Course or nine-hole South Shore Golf Course and pilot their boats from the harbor adjacent to La Rabida Children's Hospital, Gibson
 
At the very north end of the park called Jackson Park, which is directly north of the neighborhood bearing the same name, stands the famed Museum of Science and Industry. And inside the park is the Osaka Japanese Garden, located on Wooded Island just south of the museum.
 
Another distinctive feature of the community, which is bordered by 67th and 71st Streets, the lakefront and Stony Island Avenue, is its rich variety of vintage housing. Whether stately 2 1/2-story brick single-family homes in Jackson Park Highlands, or the elegant red-brick apartment buildings for which Jackson Park is known, the residences are historic, solid and voluminous,  the 5th Ward covers Jackson Park.
