The Bloomingdale Trail is an elevated city park running 2.7 miles from Ashland to Ridgeway along Bloomingdale Avenue. It was formally an abandoned railroad.

Despite the neighborhood’s historic boulevards, Logan Square needed an additional 99 acres of active open space just to be brought up to City minimums. The City’s proposal to convert the Bloomingdale Line to a park was included in the 2004 Logan Square Open Space Plan.

The City’s proposal led to the creation of Friends of the Bloomingdale Trail, which was the key to creating The 606. The group had an increasing number of support not just in Logan Square, but in the other neighborhoods surrounding the rail line: Humboldt Park, Bucktown and Wicker Park.

Its construction began in the summer of 2013 and the park officially opened on Saturday, June 6, 2015. The trail can be used for running, biking, and walking. With dog and community parks, The 606 hosts a variety of events throughout the year. For events and more information you can visit The 606.
