Douglas Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Douglas Park

A concentration of residential blocks surrounding one of Chicago's largest parks, Douglas Park is a west side neighborhood tucked within the larger community of Lawndale. Named for the central focus of the area, this little region has its priorities straight: acres of parkland and open green expanses. More than just a slab of grass, Douglas Park's namesake park is home to a Cultural and Community Center that boasts all the intramural, recreational fun you can handle. The outdoor pool, volleyball and tennis courts, miniature golf course, sandboxes, and spray pools are always hot in the summer. But the wintertime is no exception to the community center's popularity as the lake freezes over and makes for a picture perfect ice skating rink. Packed with families from the neighborhood and surrounding areas, the center's outside features make this the ultimate Chicago playground. Inside, the center is also bustling with Douglas Park residents fond of arts and crafts, dance classes and music lessons.

Douglas Park Real Estate

In Douglas, the parks are full of color and the streets are filled with vintage brick buildings and graystones. A sense of intrigue floats through the neighborhood with famous, but slightly forgotten monuments, wind-swept beaches, and plenty of history-heavy residential estates.

Douglas is a mix of high-rise condominiums, two- to four-flat low-rise buildings, old brick and new construction townhomes, and vintage single-family residences. Generally speaking, condos in Douglas start in the low $100,000s for a one-bedroom and can reach up to the upper $200,000s for something with more space—and another bedroom. These include vintage brick flats and new-construction mid-rise units with luxury amenities and upgrades. Three-bedroom Douglas townhomes range between $400,000 and the upper $600,000s. A three-bedroom single-family detached home can cost less than a condo—for an older one-story house—although many of the new model or rehabbed places are going to be more expensive. Typically, for a three- to five-bedroom house in this neighborhood you should expect to spend around $540,000. Several sought-after Douglas streets like King Drive are lined with beautiful properties. Unfortunately, you’re not likely to see these neighborhood gems listed on the market.
