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.

Oh, What a Night

The Big Night was big fun! Some 300 neighbors celebrated BAPA’s 75th anniversary serving Beverly/Morgan Park. They sipped and danced to the 17-piece Outcast Jazz Band at the beautiful Vineyard Beverly, and helped raise funds to support BAPA programming.
