West Bucktown’s housing is not unlike Bucktown’s, with many single-family homes, 2- and 3-flats, small townhome developments and mid-size condo and apartment buildings. New construction in the area has been booming, even during the economic downturn – a sign of a healthy community committed to growth and improvement.

West Bucktown has two parks, Maplewood on the south has a softball field and small field house, and Lucy Flower Park, which consists of a well-manicured green space. Both have children’s play lots, indicative of a family-oriented community.
