Tucked away in the West Ridge community sits a community treasure—Indian Boundary Park and Cultural Center. Beyond the quaint Tudor-style field house, visitors can discover a beautifully restored nature area and duck-filled lagoon, a children’s spray pool, and four tennis courts.
As a designated cultural center, Indian Boundary thrives with various painting, piano, dance and voice lessons for both children and adults. Check out the stained glass and weaving class options. Some classes take place on the park’s back porch so that artists can use the park’s scenery as inspiration.
Indian Boundary is a residency site in the Civic Orchestra of Chicago’s program, offering free, family-oriented and interactive concert performances for the community throughout the year. T. Daniel Productions in Residence offers a free Mime Class for Kids, an Adult Mime Class, Intensive Mime Studies and a Season of performances of Mime & Music productions for the community. In addition, Fury Theatre is in residency here at the park. They produce a number of fine Shakespeare productions throughout the year.
Indian Boundary Park Natural Area is one acre of native prairie habitat within Indian Boundary Park. It is situated adjacent to the park’s lagoon and is heavy with nectar plants, which provide food for pollinators like bees and butterflies.
