Maple Park Community (formerly West Pullman)
The Maple Park community is inundated with amenities that is unlike anywhere in Chicago. This is one of the only areas that is surrounded with multiple assets such as transit access, recreation, and shopping, industrial, and excellent housing stock. Since 2012, the Maple Park MMRP Team (Far South CDC, Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives (CNI), Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS)) have focused their efforts in the revitalization of single-family housing. Within 10 minutes, residents will have complete access to three major expressways (I-57, I-94, I-90) with direct access to I-57, and access to one of Chicago’s major local street arteries: Halsted Street. As for public transit, there are seven bus and rail routes serviced by Metra, CTA, and PACE. In 2012, Maple Park became the home of the 33-arce, $80 million Ray & Joan Kroc Recreation facility, which includes an in-door and outdoor track, football and baseball field, in-r water park, and much more. Other assets in the Maple Park community includes: 488,000 square foot shopping mall: Marshfield Plaza, 20,000 Exelon Solar Farm, which is the largest urban solar farm in the United States; new West Pullman Library; (3) industrial corporations; Christ Universal Temple campus; and an 18-hole golf course five minutes south of Maple Park.
