Chicagoisthebest, I'll have to ride my bike through there.

Currently taking a break from shovelling, with a couple of Negra Modelos, and ready to watch Falling Down and The Shining.

So, thinking of another park, I'll nominate: Armour Square Park. Old old school sprinkler. I've seen photos of the good ol days! They have a nice set up for a playground. Indoor pool, yet outside (you'll know what I mean if you've been there. )

A guy called to me and asked him if I could help him carry a lawnmower from his truck. He was surprised that I live in Milwaukee but was just riding around on a bicycle in Chicago!
MJ...... Forest Glen is an entirely different area from Old Edgebrook and is along a different golf course through the woods. But if you were on Leader near Caldwell, you were in Edgebrook not Forest Glen. Kind of between Forest Glen to the south and Old Edgebrook to the northwest. The golf course you saw was Billy Caldwell golf course. Old Edgebrook is along Edgebrook Golf Course which is about a mile north and west of where you were by car (about a half mile as the crow flies over the woods).

Master jay, It’s saids it is a community area but a lot of people think forest glen is the area south of Chicago river north branch or north of foster/Elston/Milwaukee and west of edens. I am not sure why they call that whole area forest glen including sauganash, edgebrook, etc.

Chicagoisthebest, good morning. I hope the snow was not TOO bad for you.

The community area, known as Forest Glen, is a very beautiful area. And I like all parts of it, west AND east of the Edens!

I have been to all of its specific neighborhoods (Forest Glen {the namesake}, Sauganash, the various Edgebrooks, Wildwood). Am I missing one????

Riding through them on bicycle on a warm day is a favorite, peaceful, pastime of mine. Normally when I come down by myself. But I've also taken Milwaukee friends down, and even shown Chicagoans parts of the city they've never seen!

I have been to Sauganash Park before as well as Edgebrook Park. They are very nice. Just not some of the main ones I have gone to with my kids over the years. But still very, very nice parks.

Having grown up there with HS friends and later colleagues all over that area, I have never heard anyone refer to Edgebrook or Sauganash as part of Forest Glen. They are all distinct communities separated mostly by wide swaths of forest and golf courses. But all of them are nice areas as far as the city goes.

wjj, good morning, please keep in mind that I am somewhat speaking as a visitor that has studied the city.

I totally acknowledge that a person from Edgebrook or Sauganash, for example, would not say they live in Forest Glen.

That said, of the 77 official city community areas in Chicago, "Forest Glen" is one of them, and it includes several "neighborhoods" inside it.

Just like someone who lives in Chinatown is probably NOT going to say they are from Armour Square, although Armour Square IS an actual neighborhood as well as a city community area that includes Chinatown.
