Kilbourn Park
Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Kilbourn Park Overview

Kilbourn Park is a part of Irving Park.

When you're looking for that ideal Chicago neighborhood, Kilbourn Park is the picture perfect place to settle down. This small northwest side community has it all – appetizing restaurants, notable shopping and excellent educational facilities. Kilbourn Parkers live in a mix of housing options that include contemporary lofts and condos, and single-family homes. Outside the residential blocks are an international tour of dining spots. Asian cuisine tops the bill, followed by Mexican cantinas, a couple pizza places, and a slew of bar and grills. Retail runs the gamut as well, supplying shoppers with everything from sweaters for Fido to a long, white gown for the bride-to-be. Residing in the big city doesn't mean you have to forego green grass and open spaces… Kilbourn Parkers have their very own community park and organic greenhouse where residents can get their fill of outdoor legroom and all-natural plant life.

Kilbourn Park History

It’s always interesting to learn a little history about your neighborhood, including how a hometown like Kilbourn Park was officially named.

Kilbourn Park was developed along with Old Irving Park during the end of the nineteenth century, attracting mostly middle-class Protestants who sought the solace of quiet, tree-lined streets. The community was serviced by streetcars and light commuter rail, both of which have since been discontinued. Until the Great Depression, most of the area was relatively wealthy and it was noted for its large homes; however, during the Depression, many of those homes were converted into multiple-family units. In the following decades the racial makeup of the neighborhood began to shift from a solidly white, native-born population to one of greater ethnic diversity. Swedish and German immigrants arrived to Chicago in the first two decades of the twentieth century, and they were later followed by Polish and Russian Immigrants in the years following the First World War.

With the flood of immigration in the first half of the twentieth century, the demographic makeup of the neighborhood was shaken-up and the median income of neighborhood residents was greatly reduced. The population of community gradually shrank in the following decades as well, until new waves of immigration started in the 1980s. Mexican and Asian immigration increased dramatically beginning in the late ‘80s, and they now make up more than a quarter of Kilbourn Park’s population. Today, Kilbourn Park is an ethnically diverse working-class neighborhood in the northwest side of Chicago.
