What Renters Like and Dislike About Chicago Heights

The park and trail is my favorite because it's so relaxing to just go on a nature walk when I'm feeling low and can let the sun shine on my pretty face and skin

I have great neighbors. I live in a diverse neighborhood. We have variety of restaurants, shops, bars, etc.

We have restaurants, movies, shops, malls and general stores and a place to play slot machines, and a bowling alley and a store to play the lottery in walking distances,

I like how quiet the neighborhood is. My neighborhood is quite family friendly. There are schools nearby too.

We like to go to the parks and community festivals. We go the church & church events We go to local school events like football & baseball games
