Located only 16 miles from downtown Chicago, Calumet Park has the comforts of a small village and sits on the edges of the Little Calumet River, Whistler Woods Forest Preserve and the Joe Louis Golf Course. It is surrounded by the communities of West Pullman, Blue Island and Riverdale. The town of 7,835 is the home of the new state-of-the-art 911 Center (CALCOMM 9-1-1), which serves Calumet Park, Markham, Midlothian, Posen, Robbins and Sauk Village. Calumet Park touts itself as “the place to be for economic development.” It has direct access to Interstate-57, a Metra train stop and a railroad depot. Midway and O’Hare International airports are located within 40 miles.
