Irving Park is one of 77 officially designated Chicago community areas located on the Northwest Side with a population of 53,530. Irving Park is in Cook County and named after the American author Washington Irving. It is bounded by the Chicago River on the east, the Milwaukee Road railroad tracks on the west, Addison Street on the south and Montrose Avenue on the north, west of Pulaski Road stretching to encompass the region between Belmont Avenue on the south and, roughly, Leland Avenue on the north. Living in Irving Park offers residents an urban suburban mix feel. Incorporating Old Irving Park and the Victorian homes of the Villa District, this tranquil area houses plenty of family-friendly green spaces like Horner Park with its baseball fields and summer farmer's market. Irving Park Street and Milwaukee Avenue are where cafes and an eclectic choice of eateries can be found, while craft beers and ciders are offered in an industrial-chic bar at the ERIS Brewery & Cider House.
