West Garfield Park on the West Side of Chicago, Illinois, is one of 77 officially designated Chicago community areas. It is directly west of Garfield Park. West Garfield Park has become a working-class neighborhood on the rise. Its convenience to downtown has attracted the interest of business-owners and residential developers, but as of now, the up-and-coming West Garfield Park is still an affordable option for first-time homebuyers, young working singles and families alike.
