The Bedford Park Residents Organization was founded in 1999 to provide a community voice regarding area re-development. The group became inactive a number of years ago.

In the summer of 2018, BPRO was reactivated in response to the proposed re-development of 250 Lawrence Avenue West, and to prepare for any future projects that may affect our area, particularly along Avenue Road, Yonge Street and Lawrence Avenue.
