Humboldt Park Neighborhood Guide

Neighborhood Overview

Named for of the city’s finest public green spaces, Humboldt Park is a mostly residential neighborhood situated on the city’s West Side, just due west of the Loop. The park itself covers more than ten square blocks (207 acres) including running paths, athletic fields and a the city’s only fishable lagoon. Overlooking the lagoon stands the Humboldt Park Boathouse Pavilion, a designated Chicago landmark.

Home to the city’s largest population of Puerto Rican-Americans, Humboldt Park is a cultural hub of the city, playing host to several cultural events, including a Puerto Rican Film Festival, one of the city’s largest annual parades and several outdoor festivals.

The neighborhood centers around the commercial corridor known as Paseo Boricua, which is located on Division Street Between Western and California. Lined with Puerto Rican businesses and book-ended by two sixty-foot tall steel Puerto Rican flags, the district is a point of pride for the neighborhood’s residents.
