Riverbank Neighbors is a neighborhood organization whose mission is the preservation and investment in the North Branch Riverbank trails and surrounding neighborhood. The group’s long time sponsor is Friends of the Chicago River, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This group spends time together:

  • Cleaning up the North Branch River trails making them easier to access and enjoy
  • Partnering with Waters Elementary Head of Ecology to plant native friendly flowers and grasses for the park area
  • Cultivating the common area gardens
  • Celebrating community with gatherings like the Equinox Gathering with games, food, music and fun!

Riverbank Neighbors and their community efforts make this the “best kept secret” neighborhood on the North Side. It is a beautiful, established, and secure community of people who love and are invested in where they live. More information is found at riverbankneighbors.org.


The nearby Riverview Bridge, which began construction in November 2017, will soar over the Chicago River, connect Belmont to Montrose and will include a 1,000 foot curved section just north of Addison.

It is a part of a bigger project called 312RiverRun. that extends a jogging, biking and walking path for nearly 2 miles between Addison Street and Irving Park Avenue and links parks and other recreational facilities. Work will be divided into two phases and is planned to be complete by late 2019. Funding for the $25.7 million project is from federal, state and local sources. The bridge and path are a big step forward toward creating a continuous system of trails along the river.
