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.

Neighbors, we've lost hundreds of parkway trees to disease, insects, and other culprits. Help us rebuild by (1) requesting a FREE PARKWAY TREE in front of your house; and (2) planting trees with us on Sat., Oct. 8.
We sipped, we shopped, we had a spectacular time! Thanks to all who came out for a beautiful evening in our 99th and 103rd business districts. Truly a community celebration that shined a light on our local businesses.
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.
BAPA is supported by membership donations from Beverly area residents and businesses, as well as grants. Learn more about how you can help BAPA continue its valuable work in our neighborhood.
