Norwood Park believes in appreciating the community and all the people that live around it. It offers not only community programs for students but activities for all age brackets. The neighborhood is well kept, extremely clean and hardly any major incidents occur in this are. All around beautiful during the spring and summer time due to the scale of greenery here.
A great place to live, within the city but with a more suburban feel. Close to public transit and the expressway. Lots of good food. Would be even better if the planes weren't so loud!
