The Neighborhood Of Washington Park
With roughly half its residential lots vacant, Washington Park stands poised for the rebuilding that has transformed surrounding Hyde Park, Kenwood and Grand Boulevard. The namesake park on the community's eastern edge, from Cottage Grove Avenue to King Drive, is simultaneously its most celebrated asset and its isolating barrier, sheltering the roughly 20,000 residents from the progress visiting Hyde Park. Residential Washington Park takes up at King Drive and stretches west to Wentworth, just west of the Dan Ryan, from 51st to 63rd Street.

St. Edmund Episcopal Church's Redevelopment Corp. has focused on rehabbing buildings in the western portion of the community, immediately near its church at 61st and Michigan. The Rev. Richard Tolliver arrived at St. Edmund in 1989, greeted by a 90 percent commuter congregation of families with old ties to the community. Aiming eventually to build market-rate housing, Tolliver formed the Redevelopment Corp. four years ago. Several buildings around the church were rehabbed as 67 1- to 4-bedroom units, which rent from the low $400s to about $600 a month.

Long without a major grocery store or its own movie theater, Washington Park is tied to progress in surrounding communities. Residents anticipate the opening of a new Hyde Park Cooperative Society supermarket at the Lake Park Pointe mall, under construction at 47th and Lake Park Avenue in Kenwood.

Washington Park is one of few communities without its own high school. Students graduating from one of eight public and several other elementary schools are fed into several surrounding high schools. Edward W. Beasley is the area's premier magnet school, and Austin O. Sexton, 6001 S. Langley. Several elementary schools were placed on probation in the Board of Education's recent crackdown. Carter Public School, 5739 S. Wabash, is currently emerging from probation, with 18 percent of students reading at grade level, up from less than 15 percent. Betsy Ross School is beginning Lighthouse program to improve literacy with after school reading and math instruction.

DuSable Museum of African American History, in the park at 740 E. 56th Pl., offers some of the neighborhood's greatest cultural amenities. Its annual events include an outdoor summer art fair, a Labor Day African Festival of the Arts in conjunction with the Park District, and in December Durbar L' Afrique, an indoor bazaar of African arts and wares. Five sculptures by African American artists stand in the Museum's sunken garden. The Museum also offers art classes, workshops and tours, musical concerts, plays, a children's book club, book signings and special exhibits.
