Norwood Park, named after Henry Ward Beecher’s novel Norwood, or Village Life in New England (1868), it is located northwest of Chicago, between Gunnison Street and Devon Avenue and Cumberland and Caldwell Woods. Historically Irish and Italian, Norwood Park is known for its greenery – in lawns, parks, churchyards, and abundant trees.
Since 1922, Norwood Park has hosted a neighborhood Memorial Day Parade and the community is very centered on family life. Block parties and community events like Dinner with Santa, local shopping, and of course Norwood Park itself, offer residents many entertainment options. The expansive 14-acre Norwood Park enjoys and outdoor swimming pool complete with a water slide, making it a favorite destination for young neighborhood swimmers. The park also offers youth programs, from flag football, floor hockey, and tumbling, to acting, piano, and ballet. Boasting a state-of-the-art fitness center, and 1/5-mile oval, gravel running track with lights, along with a baseball field and four tennis courts, Norwood Park has it all.Read More ▾
Public & Private Institutions Of Learning
Education is provided by public, private and home schools. State governments set overall educational standards, often mandate standardized tests for K–12 public school systems and supervise, usually through a board of regents, state colleges, and universities. Funding comes from the state, local, and federal government. Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities, although some state regulation can apply.
