Located on Sheriden Rd in the Edgewater community, the park overlooks beautiful Lake Michigan. As an early proponent of developing street-end beaches on Chicago's north side, Berger Park Cultural Center has now become a neighborhood icon.
Great for fun learning and excitement, events such as Concerts and Movies in the Park and the Annual Jewelry and Ceramics Show have contributed to the cultural façade of Chicago’s north shore area. Boasting programs that include Art and ABC's, Jewelry Making, Writer’s Workshop, an arts based Park Kids after school program and Pottery, the Cultural Center is currently home to one of the most popular ceramics program within the Chicago Park District. Proud partner to some of Chicago's finest arts organizations, Berger offers patrons the unique opportunity to study with MadShak Dance, Journeymen Theatre and Soul and Duende Flamenco Dance.
