Braeside, also known as Lake Cook Road, is a railroad station in Highland Park, Illinois serving Metra's Union Pacific/North Line, in the Braeside neighborhood of Highland Park. It is located at 10 North St. Johns Avenue, just off Lake Cook Road. In Metra's zone-based fare schedule, Braeside is located in "Zone E". Cook County Forest Preserves' Turnbull Woods and William N. Erickson Preserve are adjacent to the station, and the Chicago Botanic Garden is a mile away. Braeside Station has a warming hut on the inbound side of the track, but not on the outbound side. The station is named after the school a block or two away from it. The station consists of two platforms and a waiting room/warming hut, but does not contain a ticket agent booth or restroom facilities. Closest restroom facilities are located at Bob's Pantry and Deli (on the east side of the tracks). Northbound trains stop on the west platform and southbound trains stop on the east platform. Trains go south to Chicago's Ogilvie Transportation Center, and as far north as Kenosha, Wisconsin.
