welcome to


Welcome to Walt Disneys place of birth! As one of Chicagos smaller community areas, Hermosa has quite a lot of character and many interesting attributes, nonetheless. Located on the northwest side of the city, it is one of Chicagos most densely populated neighborhoods. Due to the number of work opportunities available, many residents choose to live in Hermosa simply because of such proximity. Boasting four parks with a variety of recreational facilities and many CTA bus routes, access to the Blue Line, and several Metra routes, it is possible to both enjoy your free time in Hermosa, while also easily traveling to other parts of the city. Since Hermosa is located nearby The 606 Recreational Trail, residents are also able to enjoy early morning bike rides or strolls in the evening time.
