Wicker Park is known for its world-class restaurants and trendy nightlife. But it is a very different scene by day. Parents push strollers to the park. Kids ride bikes up and down the sidewalks. Families take advantage of all that this neighborhood has to offer. Wicker Park is relatively small, making it an ideal neighborhood for a strolling tour.
The boundaries of Wicker Park are North Avenue to the north, Division Street to the south, Ashland to the east and Western Avenue to the west. Within those boundaries, there are many wonderful spots for families to play, eat, shop and explore.You might also like:
