City GuideMelrose Park

Melrose Park has a glorious -- and fun -- past! This Chicago suburb was once home to the beloved Kiddieland Amusement Park, which recently closed in 2010. Today, that land is home to Maywood Park Racetrack. Melrose Park is also the hometown of Stern Pinball, Inc -- the world's last manufacturer of coin-operated pinball machines!

When Melrose Park was first established, it was called Melrose, a small Chicago suburb in 1882. For some reason in 1893, the residents decided to add a "Park" to their name, and with that, the population began to grow. It hasn't been total smooth sailing in town; in 1920, there was an F4 tornado on Palm Sunday that killed 10 residents and destroyed the Sacred Heart Church and the attached convent. But since then, the small town has recovered, repaired itself, grown and continued to thrive as one of Chicago's most beloved suburbs. People that live here tend to commute into Chicago for work and play. But the community itself is solid and strong, and there are actually tons of things to do in town without having to leave.

Having trouble with Craigslist Melrose Park? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Moving to Melrose Park

You want to make sure you end up in the right area! Want to know more about Melrose Park neighborhoods? Check out the list below.

Southern Melrose Park: Southern Melrose Park feels more like the city's center. That's because it's home to most of the town's main amenities. In southern Melrose Park, particularly on West Lake Street, you can find tons of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and even transportation options. This is a great place to live if you want to be in the heart of the action; search for apartments here if you want to be close to all the amenities you could want.

Central Melrose Park: The center of Melrose Park is a good transition area. It has some businesses and restaurants, but it's mostly residential. You can find places for rent here, in addition to homes to buy. There are still some commercial joints here, so you won't have to drive too far if you want to go out to eat.

Northern Melrose Park: Northern Melrose Park is the most rural and suburban feeling of any area in town.

You'll also want to have the deposit prepared in case you find the apartment you love! Living near Chicago is something a lot of people do, and if you find just the right place, you'll want to secure it -- don't let it get snatched out from under you!
