Park #538, located in the West Ridge community offers over 3-miles of Rustic Hiking Trails through uncultivated woodland-grassland and riverbank habitats, all neatly fitting into an accessible one-mile stretch of parkland situated on the east bank of the North Shore Channel, running along Kedzie Avenue between Touhy and Devon Avenues.  Overall, it encompasses 29.67 acres of land – of this, about 30 acres (including a renovated junior-league baseball stadium) is leased from the MWRDGC which retained about 5-acres along the Channel banks.

The park is home to the Stadium at Devon and Kedzie. The stadium is owned by the Chicago Park District and managed by ASM Global. Visit www.thebsdk.com to learn more about the stadium.
