Life in Rogers Park

Few Chicago neighborhoods can boast over one and a half miles of lakefront beaches and parks, two commuter rail lines, a mixture of vintage apartment buildings and gracious homes.
 
With Evanston on the north and Lake Michigan on the east, Rogers Park is the North Shore suburbs' gateway to Chicago. As one of the most diverse populations in the metropolitan area, many Rogers Park community members 
are active in local and citywide politics, business and art initiatives, and community improvement projects.
 
At the heart of Rogers Park’s vitality are the elements that make a neighborhood great:  
 
Thirteen easily accessible beaches and lakefront parks Cultural richness offered by Loyola University’s musical, theatric and arts programming.
A creative community of some of Chicago’s leading artists and craftspeople.
Retail shops and restaurants that reflect the heritage of more than a dozen distinct ethnic cultures.
The City of Chicago has invested significantly to improve Rogers Park’s schools.
