Part of the larger Forest Glen community area, Wildwood is a small neighborhood on the northwest side that is bordered on the south and west by forest preserves. Mostly made up of tree-lined residential streets, giving the area a "unique, almost rural setting," Wildwood breaks from Chicago's traditional grid system. A majority of the neighborhood's streets are on a diagonal, and that, coupled with the tree-heavy setting, makes the community one of Chicago's more "suburban-feeling" areas.
