Welcome!

Big Oaks is a residential North Side Chicago neighborhood with a lovely grid of tree-lined streets. The land that makes up the neighborhood used to be part of the now gone Big Oaks Golf Course, but you can still play at the Ridgemore Country Club next door. Most homes here were built in the 1960's and 70's and are beautifully kept up. You can find all kinds of restaurants with everything from pizza to pierogi. Big Oaks is a cozy place to live - come visit up!
