The CTA offers a train stop on the Blue Line and bus lines. There is also a stop on Metra’s Milwaukee District North Line.
Named for the nearby park of the same name, Portage Park is bordered by Montrose Avenue to the north, Narragansett Avenue to the west, Roscoe Street to the south, and Cicero Avenue to the east. In the early 1800s, the area was a “portage” used by Native Americans to transport canoes between the Chicago and Des Plaines Rivers. The land was officially given the name Portage Park in 1912. Portage Park is served by the CTA Blue Line which has two train stops at nearby Montrose and Irving Park and connects riders to O’Hare, the Loop, and the rest of the CTA system. In addition, a number of CTA bus routes serve the area and the Milwaukee District North Line of the Metra train is located close to the Montrose Blue Line stop. Portage Park’s famous “Six Corners,” at the intersection of Irving Park Road, Cicero Avenue, and Milwaukee Avenue, is a shopping district where most of the area’s commercial activity takes place. Portage Park is a 36.5 acre park with many amenities including an Olympic-size pool, a bike path, five baseball fields, two combination football/soccer fields, a gymnasium and a cultural arts building. Youth activities include sports and music.
