Chill out in one of Chicago’s best-known neighborhoods, a highly coveted place to live. This is Lincoln Park, a stunningly beautiful part of the city with tree-lined parkways, delightful boutiques, historical brownstones and plenty of green space to spread out in.

Go for a stroll, laze in the grass and let the children have fun in the playground at Oz Park. This public park was founded in 1976 and named in honor of L. Frank Baum, a former Chicago resident and the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
