Bedford Park's Playstreets set to close
The Police Athletic League's Playstreets program is set to close after more than 20 years of serving children in Bedford Park.
The popular summer program hosts more than 100 children, but its director says it will be gone this year "due to a reduction in departmental funding."
Some Playstreets are being closed and replaced by other summer programs.
PAL Playstreets was started in 1914 to provide children with a safe place to learn, play and interact with their communities.
The Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice told News 12 in a statement, "This year, we are making some strategic improvements to serve more people with a richer array of dedicated services for the same amount of money."
