Block Party

Join for an all day Block Party celebration at the WACA Playlot featuring music, performances, fun activities, and a basketball tournament.

Bell Park is owned and operated by the Westside Association for Community Action (WACA). Bell Park, also known as IBT play lot, was the site of WACA’s first workforce program, creating local employment for North Lawndale residents. WACA’s motto “Give a man a fish; he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime,” is a reflection philosophy, by providing a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment, as well as one-on-one and group activities for the youth and young adults, we remove barriers and create opportunity.
