Portage Park is a wonderful area of Chicago, located on the northwest side of the City. Its parameters are Cicero on the east and Narragansett on the west. North is Montrose and south is Belmont. It is a large area in the city and supports a lot of businesses , a hospital, grocery, dining and entertainment. It is named Portage Park because of the huge park located at Irving Park and Central. It is a huge park with many programs available for city residents. There is also a new senior center that has many programs. Portage Park has a newer Olympic sized swimming pool and a separate pool for diving and it was used in the Olympics in the 50's. Mark Spitz also did his trials here!! There is a kiddies pool area and area for adults only. When the park was built in the 20's a lagoon was built and this is where the pools are now. The gymnasium was built in the 20's and is a testament to prairie architecture. There is even an indoor pool for the wintertime!
