Meet Buena Park Neighbor Joe Davis

Joe Davis came across a Buena Park Neighbors’ Clean and Green event on Facebook that involved repainting the Buena tunnel to the Peace Garden. After working shoulder to shoulder with his neighbors he got hooked on the organization. Shortly after joining Buena Park Neighbors Joe became a Block Captain to help spread public awareness of community events and projects.

Joe and his wife Nicole moved to Buena Park three years ago. They were looking for a quieter, tree-lined neighborhood, and Buena Park provided exactly what they were looking for. You can find Joe and his pug Stanley playing at Challenger Dog Park, enjoying pizza at Michaels’s Original Pizzeria and Tavern, perusing the great wine selection at North Buena Deli and Wine, attending church at Saint Mary of the Lake and volunteering at Ginkgo Organic Gardens. Joe really loves the short walk to the Sheridan Red Line. While Buena Park is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Wrigleyville he can still hear the roar of the crowd from Wrigley Field.

When Joe is not out and about in Buena Park he is part of Chicago’s booming tech industry and works as a Marketing Manager at Groupon. His wife Nicole is serving the community by working in primary care as an Advanced Practice Nurse. This fall, Joe and his condo neighbors are determined to win the best decorated home award during Boo-ena Park Safe Trick-or-Treating on Kenmore.
