Stickney Township is located in Cook County, Illinois, and has a total area of 12.7 square miles. The population was 38,673 at the 2000 census, with approximately 72% of that total living in the city of Burbank (pop. 27,902). Township offices are located at 5635 W. State Road in Burbank. Other municipalities in the township include Stickney (pop. 6,148) and Forest View (pop. 778), and the largely industrial eastern half of Bedford Park, as well as some small portions of Bridgeview. The unincorporated communities of Central Stickney and Nottingham Park are also within the township. Stickney Township's approximate borders are Pershing Road (39th Street) on the north, Cicero Avenue on the east, 87th Street on the south, and Harlem Avenue on the west, excepting those areas in the Chicago communities of Garfield Ridge and Clearing (which include Chicago Midway International Airport), but also including the area between Laramie and Cicero Avenues as far north as 35th Street.

Stickney Township is bordered on the north by Berwyn and Cicero Townships, on the west by Lyons Township, and on the south by Worth Township. On the east, it is bordered by the Chicago communities of West Lawn and Ashburn. Stickney Township was originally part of Lake Township, until much of its area was annexed by the city of Chicago in 1889; afterward, the remaining area became part of Lyons Township until 1901.
