Kelvyn Park residents delight in their neighborhood's prime characteristics such as handy shopping and dining options, a location minutes from major Chicago expressways, and a popular central park that is used throughout the year. Kelvyn Park's eateries are a combination of familiar national chains and homey mom-and-pops kitchens. Sure you can get your latte at Starbucks, but the Cozy Corner Diner also brews up a good cup of joe that goes best with a stack of syrup drenched pancakes. That will do for the morning, but once the evening rolls around, people who like to go out for a nightcap will find Kelvyn Park's neighborhood taverns to be simple but suitable.
The neighborhood of Kelyvn Park lies next door to Hermosa, Kilbourn Park and Belmont Gardens on Chicago’s northwest side. All of these areas are similar in that they have only recently been built up and revitalized—with much of the transformation taking place since the 1990s. Thanks to the locals being persistent in their volunteer work to develop and beautify the vicinity, these communities are now home to scenic parks, thriving businesses and family-friendly residents. A neighborhood with a significant Hispanic and Polish population, Kelvyn Park is rich in family values and cultural heritage.
