The Welles Park Parents Association (WPPA) is a parent volunteer organization that operates in cooperation with the Chicago Park District to provide baseball instruction to neighborhood children. In 1990, Welles Park chose to discontinue its baseball program. The WPPA was formed in order to continue to offer baseball to our kids in the spring, summer, and fall months. The association has obtained both Federal and State tax-exempt charitable organization status. The program has expanded and we now use the fields and facilities at Welles Pak as well as other parks throughout the northside.
