Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

  • Metra serves Park Ridge with service on the Union Pacific Northwest Line. The 1 Park Ridge Metra station is at 100 South Summit Avenue, between Touhy Avenue and Prospect Avenue in downtown Park Ridge, and has a waiting room that is open 5AM-9PM daily, and also has a ticket agent available weekdays 5:25AM-12:55PM. The less used 2 Dee Road Metra station is at 950 Busse Highway, west of Dee Road and south of Oakton Street in northwest Park Ridge; this station has a shelter but no ticket agent.

Get around[edit]



  • 1 Pickwick Theatre, 5 S Prospect Ave, +1-847-825-5800. One of the true grand movie palaces remaining in the Chicagoland area. Make sure you have a ticket for the show on the main screen, though, not the shoebox mini-plex around the corner.
  • Park Ridge Music Concerts, several free Friday night concerts held during the summer in front of city hall. Always start at 8PM.



  • 1 Wally's Gyros, 1006 N Northwest Hwy, +1-847-825-2214. M-Sa 11AM-10PM, Su 11AM-9PM. Your stereotypical gyro/burger/etc joint, been around for decades.
