We are a group of community minded individuals with diverse backgrounds who enjoy staying informed about and giving back to our neighborhood. Our members are long-time and short-time residents of the area, parents, teachers, city employees, business leaders and more. We're ready to step up to ensure that Gladstone Park remains a great neighborhood to live in, but we also need YOU to make it happen!

The Gladstone Park Neighborhood Association in Chicago keeps the neighborhood informed about area developments through monthly meetings, social media sites, e-mail blasts, etc. We have fun by organizing monthly events like Thirsty Third Thursdays (in partnership with the Gladstone Park Chamber of Commerce) and our new 1st Thursday Supper Club! We also host an annual Pub Crawl (to fund our scholarship) , an annual Halloween party (to help fund Light Up Gladstone Park), and an annual Christmas Party! We assist with Throwback Music Fest thru volunteering and event planning and co-host and volunteer for the Light Up Gladstone Park, our annual tree lighting ceremony at Chopin Plaza (Milwaukee/Elston). As you can see, this Chicago neighborhood association is a very active group!
