Welcome Home to the Village of Morton Grove

Here, you’ll find a wide range of shopping and dining options, award-winning schools and parks, and miles upon miles of Cook County Forest Preserve trails and open space nestled among the North Branch of the Chicago River. With a population of 23,519, this close-knit, diverse community maintains all the ease of life in a small town while supporting a strong commercial and industrial base.

Proximity to Chicago, local expressways, commuter trains and the airport fuel this vibrant Village's growth, while the charm of its tree-lined streets, neighborhood shops and eateries, and its numerous community-wide events make residents proud to call Morton Grove home. Come see for yourself just what this incredibly close, amazingly open place has to offer.
