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!
