The Neighborhood


If you’re looking for an excellent South Side location…look no further. Ironwood Court is set in Washington Park, one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods.

Picturesque Washington Park, one of Chicago’s largest green spaces, was home to the famous 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.  Here you’ll find walking trails, a swimming pool, a fitness center, tennis courts, a playground, a lagoon and much more. In addition, the Park District offers year-round programs and recreational activities for various ages.

The area is a mix of longtime and new residents attracted by affordable rents, the cultural and artistic presence, and the park’s many outdoor programs. CTA bus lines provide residents with access to the DuSable Museum, the University of Chicago, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and the Museum of Science and Industry. Other nearby area attractions include Hyde Park with its large variety of restaurants and shopping choices.
