Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks Virtual Tour 2020


Named for the tree-studded ridge that runs along the park’s western boundary, the one-time shoreline of glacial Lake Chicago totals over nine acres in the Beverly community. The fieldhouse features a gymnasium, auditorium, indoor swimming pool, fitness center, and woodshop. Park-goers can participate in sports and cultural programs, ranging from cheerleading, aquatics, lacrosse, model car making, furniture building and repair, woodcraft, pottery, and ceramics. The park also hosts the Vanderpoel Art Gallery, featuring some 500 works by American painters and sculptors.

Friday Night Porch Concert Series

Watch Performance  

With numerous community programs cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Beverly Area Planning Association knew they needed to find safe opportunities for residents to connect and engage safely—enter, the Friday Night Porch Concert Series! All summer long, small music acts are appearing on porches all across the neighborhood. Limited, socially distant audiences are invited to gather in nearby yards, or to tune in for a live-stream via Facebook. From jazz ensembles to acoustic sets, this concert series is creating opportunities for local artists while providing hope and happiness to Beverly residents.
