Bringing Out the Best
in Our Community.
The Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA) invites you to learn more about why we love where we live. One of Chicago’s oldest grass roots community organizations, BAPA has been serving the people, businesses and organizations of Beverly/Morgan Park for nearly 75 years. With the help of our community partners, BAPA’s staff fosters a safe, friendly, diverse and family-oriented neighborhood that’s characterized by its fascinating history and outstanding architecture. Our close-knit community has top-notch schools, growing businesses, a thriving arts and culture scene, great home values and plentiful green spaces. Whether you’re a prospective resident, current neighbor or business owner looking for resources or referrals, BAPA can help.
We sipped, we shopped, we had a sensational time. Thanks to the more than 300 people who purchased tickets and the 20+ local businesses that showcased their wares. We also truly appreciate the partnership of the MPBHBA, who helped us promote and manage this popular event.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the 2021 Ridge Run! Find your results and race times here!

Beverly Hills/Morgan Park is the gem of Chicago’s South Side. You can’t beat our beautiful, historic homes, rich recreational and arts resources, or the hospitality of our neighbors.
