Description

Located in the Forest Glen community just north of Devon Avenue and east of Central Avenue, Edgebrook Park is a five-acre school/park campus site consisting of baseball fields, and open greenspace.

During the school year and beginning at 3:30 pm, the Chicago Park District uses Edgebrook School’s gymnasium to offer instructional sports programming such as Basketball, Indoor soccer, Dodgeball, and Kickball for community youth.
 
Looking for something to keep your little ones active the park staff offers a Seasonal Sports class for children aged 4-5. This program is a great way to introduce your child to a variety of sports. The class changes sports weekly - helping your child to find the sport that most interests them.  
 
Edgebrook Park also offers a Wellness program that includes a Fun with Food, and Mighty Fit Kids for children aged 6-13. We didn't forget about the adults in the neighbor! Our Wellness program also includes Yoga, Boot Camp Work Out,and Kick Boxing. We hope to see you in one of our classes.
 
During the Summer Edgebrook does not stop! We offer Day Camp for children aged 6-12, along with our Wellness program offering daytime Moms, Pops, and Tots Yoga, and several other adult fitness classes.
 
Stop by the park and chat with our staff! 

History

As automobiles became increasingly affordable to Chicago's middle-class residents in the late 1920s, the northwest side's Forest Glen quickly developed as a commuter neighborhood. In 1939, the Board of Education built the new Edgebrook Elementary School to meet the educational needs of the booming community. Thirty years later, the Chicago Park District began leasing property surrounding the school. For more than a decade, the park district and the Board of Education jointly operated the school and adjacent ball fields and playground. The park district withdrew from the site in 1983. Only seven years later, however, joint operations were reinstituted after community residents approached the park district about developing school-based recreational programming for children, teenagers, and adults. The following year, the Board of Education transferred a five-acre section of the school property to the park district but retained additional acreage for possible future library construction.
