Norwood Park

Norwood Park Station is a historic commuter railroad station along the Union Pacific/Northwest Line in the Norwood Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. It is officially located on 6088 North Northwest Highway, but also runs parallel to Avondale Avenue near Raven Street. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Norwood Park is in zone C.

Norwood Park station originally was built as the Chicago and North Western Railroad Depot in 1907. As shown on Metra's official website, the station house looks like a private residential home. In fact, the station itself is privately owned, which is one reason it opens at 5:00 A.M. and has no specific closing time.

The Norwood Park Chamber of Commerce & Industry carried out a major renovation project of the station in 1999. In 2001, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Norwood Park Station now houses the Northwest Cafe, a locally owned cafe.
