Park, 12 miles west of Loop, is rich in family traditions.
Each July for more than 100 years, thousands make the pilgrim-age
to the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which culminates
with a procession through the Village streets. Each Labor
Day weekend, the Village hosts its “Taste of Melrose
Park” officially ranked 2nd after “Taste of Chicago”.
Incredible entertainment plus over 50 exceptional foods make
this a family event beyond compare.
Melrose Park proudly wears the title of Corporate King of
the suburbs with Navistar, Ford, Jewel, Farley and others
who make their home here. Three malls make shopping convenient.
Kiddieland, miniature gold, bowling, an indoor roller rink,
Maywood Park Race Track, great restaurants, delis and bakeries
are easily accessible through Melrose Park streets. A modern
Civic Center offers a fully-equipped sports and fitness club.
