Brighton Park is a neighborhood of Chicago.

The neighborhood's name comes from the Brighton livestock market, which is located in England.

The neighborhood is bounded by the Stevenson Expressway, 48th Street, Western Avenue, and Kimball Street.
The community was incorporated in 1851, as a village.

Brighton Park was home to two big businesses, a race track and a stockyard, in the mid-1800s. Unfortunately, both had closed by 1870.

During the Civil War, and for twenty years afterwards, numerous explosives' facilities were located in the area.

With a large-scale influx in the 1910s, Poles became one of the neighborhood's dominant ethnic groups.

Today, a vast majority of the neighborhood's residents claim Mexican heritage
