Kennedy Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Kennedy Park

A small, quiet community of single-family homes and Prairie-style bungalows, this hidden south side gem offers families stability, comfort and affordability. Kennedy Park is often grouped in with its big sister neighborhoods (Beverly and Morgan Park). This has actually been a good thing as Kennedy Park has benefited from the communities' organized planning initiatives and historic preservation programs. Not to mention Kennedy Park is right along the famous South Side Irish Parade path that celebrates St. Patrick's Day in true Chicago style. The rest of the year the neighborhood is pretty calm. A traditional Irish pub and a one-of-a-kind antique dealer/barber shop are all the excitement this peaceful residential locale needs.
