Marynook
Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Marynook Overview

Marynook is a part of Avalon Park.

Marynook offers a little taste of suburbia right in the city of Chicago. This south side neighborhood is a predominantly residential section of town that provides homeowners with spacious properties and a slightly more suburban setting than most areas in Chicago. Cul-de-sacs and winding roads are a far cry from the typical grid-like layout you see throughout the city. Comfy split-level houses are a stone's throw away from the sprawling, tree-shaded neighborhood park that features several athletic fields, tennis courts and a kiddie spraypool. Downtown commuters and folks heading into the Loop for fun find the Marynook Metra Train station a convenient perk. But anyone who prefers to drive can hop in the car and head over to the Chicago Skyway for a quick trip into the city's center.

Marynook History

These days, Marynook is epitomized by attractive single-family homes and a great park, so you would never know that for most of the 19th century this portion of Avalon Park was so swampy that it was uninhabited and used for garbage disposal.

Needless to say, things have changed for the better since those days, and though Marynook is within the official community area of Avalon Park, it has its very own ambiance that encompasses a more recent history than many of Chicago’s neighborhoods. The mostly residential subdivision of Marynook is just a little over 50 years old, built at a time that Chicago was trying to prevent city folk from leaving for the suburbs. That might explain why it has a suburban feel that attracts families who desire more living space, but want to stay within the metropolitan area.
