Indian Boundary Park

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, duck-filled lagoon, a small public zoo area with goats, sheep, chickens and ducks, a children's spray pool, sandbox, 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. 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. Community residents enjoy the numerous special events produced by the park staff such as; Do-It-Yourself Nutcracker; Valentine's Daddy/Daughter - Mother/Son Disco Party; and Community Halloween Bash to name a few. The Indian Boundary fieldhouse, designed by Clarence Hatzfeld, features Native American-themed ornament inspired by the park's name, taken from a territorial boundary established between the Pottawattomie Indians and United States Government. Inside is a beautiful auditorium with stage, used for programs, theater productions, concerts, community meetings and private rentals.
