Our main playground is located behind Walker School in Bedford Park. It was renovated in 1998 to accommodate children of all ages and complies with the American Disabilities Act.
Gardens Playground is located in the subdivision of Bridgeview Gardens and is located along Columbia Drive and Garden Lane. As with all other playgrounds, it complies with the American Disabilities Act and is accessible to everyone.
Our bike path is located on leased Commonwealth Edison property. It is located between the Village of Bedford Park and Bridgeview Gardens.
Our walking path begins at the Community Building, winds around the park up to the ornamental parks on Archer Avenue, runs along the bike path towards the east, and finally around the ballfields and Community Playground where all the action is. It is continually maintained with a regular schedule for adding limestone screenings.
