Serving the Beverly Hills / Morgan Park area of Chicago
The Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA) is a not-for-profit, community-based alliance of more than a dozen civic and business groups dedicated to serving the historic Beverly Hills/Morgan Park neighborhood of Chicago.
the Village in the City
Spring is in the air! After a long, snowy winter, plants are pushing their way up through the ground, getting ready to make a colorful appearance as spring unfolds. Organizations around the community are coming out of hibernation, planning events and celebrations. BAPA’s Beverly Hills/Morgan Park Home & Garden Tour will be held Sunday, May 17, showcasing five beautiful homes and gardens plus an historic church. Each stop will feature an activity or entertainment – don’t miss the fun! On May 25, the Ridge Run and Beverly Hills/Morgan Park/Mount Greenwood Memorial Day Parade will transform Longwood Drive, first into a race course and then into a parade route. Ridge Park is the start/finish line, and the destination for runners, marchers and spectators for the Memorial Day ceremony honoring the men and women of the United States armed services who have given their lives to protect our freedom. Children’s activities, sponsor giveaways and more will also be at the park. And mark your calendar now for BAPA’s two spectacular summer events: The Beverly Hills Cycling Classic is back on Friday and the date is July 17. On Aug. 8, the all new Hilltop Art & Music Festival will feature 2 stages, lots of bands, an art fair, craft beers and lots more.
