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!
Beginning at Nagle and Devon Avenues as the far Northwest corner of the boundaries, EAST to the North Branch of the Chicago River, then SOUTHEAST to Central Ave., then SOUTH to Northwest Highway, then NORTHWEST to Bryn Mawr Ave., then WEST to Nagle Ave., then NORTH to Devon Ave. GPNA boundaries include all residents on both sides of the street of defined borders.
What We Do
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 Thursday, a social event that takes place at a different venue in the area every month in partnership with the Gladstone Park Chamber of Commerce. We assist with Throwback Music Fest thru volunteering and event planing. We also host an annual Pub Crawl , co-host and volunteer for the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in December at Chopin Plaza (Milwaukee/Elston). Every event we are a part of has grown and will continue to grow with the help of our great community! As you can see, this Chicago neighborhood association is a very active group!
