The Bedford Park District was founded in 1939 when a group of dedicated citizens formed the District as an independent governmental agency. Since that time, numerous facilities have been added and/or improved. Bedford Park District has established itself as an outstanding park district within the State of Illinois and is proud of its reputation as such.
The Bedford Park District's year is divided into three seasons: Winter/Spring, Summer, and Fall/Holiday providing hundreds of programs servicing residents and non-residents of all ages. Each season we offer an abundance of programs to delight participants with a variety of interests. Some of our most popular events include the Bunny Bash, Summer Camp Parent's Night, Halloween Party and Thanksgiving Bingo.
