Berwyn, Illinois was founded by Charles E. Piper and Wilbur J. Andrews who purchased over one hundred acres near the CB&C railroad tracks in 1890. Hoping to replicate the affluent community of Berwyn, Pennsylvania, which was known for its fine gardens and lush scenery, Piper and Andrews named their town Berwyn as well. Buildings and homes were soon constructed, along with streets and sidewalks, making the town’s real estate quite sought after by nearby Chicago residents looking to depart the big city for a more picturesque area. Today Berwyn is a quiet suburb of Chicago, bounded by Roosevelt Road to the north, South Lombard Avenue to the east, West Pershing Road to the south, and Historic U.S. 66 (Highway 43) to the west.
Berwyn offers many park facilities for its residents to enjoy. Whether you prefer the wading pool, playground, green spaces, and gardens of Community Center/Pyrce Park, or the activity center, lighted tennis courts, baseball diamonds, butterfly garden, picnic groves, ponds and creek within Proska Park, visitors will find plenty of space for recreation and relaxation. If you are seeking inline skating rinks, game tables, a gazebo, or a sand volleyball court, check out Berwyn Gardens. As the name suggests, gardens and green areas are also featured here, along with benches offering a peaceful spot for visitors to rest.
