Fuller Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Fuller Park

Fuller Park is a slender 15-block south side community that hugs the west side of the Dan Ryan Expressway between Pershing Road and Garfield Boulevard. The neighborhood is named after Melville Fuller, a Chicago resident who served as the Chief Justice of the United States between 1888 and 1910. But the area's history is only the base on which this stretching neighborhood was built. Today Fuller Park inhabitants enjoy recreational community programs and activities offered at the namesake park. When the weather is nice, the outdoor baseball fields, tennis courts, playground, and kiddie spraypool are always in use. But for the winter months, the indoor gymnasium is in full swing, keeping everyone active throughout the hibernation season.
