Buena Park apartments are typically found in either towering high-rises, six units or vintage courtyard-style buildings. Buena Park is a tiny area, about a half-mile square, tucked into the southeast corner of the Uptown neighborhood, just north of Lakeview East.
Buena Park can be found just west of Lake Shore Drive, directly across from the Waveland Golf Course and Montrose Harbor, with its many boat slips. For walking, running, or riding along the lakefront bike path, it's hard to beat the Buena Park location. On the other hand, it's slightly north of the action in Wrigleyville and Boystown, and the options for dining, shopping, and entertainment are more limited. There is, however, a Jewel/Osco in the neighborhood.
Public transportation is reasonably accessible, as buses run along each of the four major thoroughfares in Buena Park, namely, Sheridan Road, Broadway, Clarendon Avenue, and Marine Drive, and an el station with red and purple line trains is located at the southwest tip of Buena Park.
