Recreation and Parks in Logan Square

Even though Logan Square is an urban neighborhood, it has great parks, recreation options, and green spaces. Most famously is the historic Logan Square Park – a public square anchored by the iconic eagle-topped Illinois Centennial Monument. 

One of the neighborhood’s prettiest green spaces is Logan Boulevard, a tree-lined parkway that stretches for over a mile and is flanked by historic mansions and charming boulevards. This peaceful stretch is perfect for leisurely strolls, jogging, or biking. 

When you live here you’ll love being close to the Bloomingdale Trail (commonly known as The 606), a former railway line turned elevated park and trail that winds through the neighborhood. A popular spot for walkers, joggers, and cyclists, The 606 is adorned with public art and provides breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline.

Humboldt Park, located near Logan Square’s southern border, is the area’s largest park. At 197 acres, it’s a hub for outdoor activities and has lagoons, gardens, sports fields, and a historic fieldhouse. Take your dog out for a run around the park or pack an afternoon picnic and enjoy a beautiful summer day in your neighborhood! 

One awesome thing that sets Logan Square apart from other Chicago neighborhoods is its focus on events and outdoor festivals.
