We're almost there! The Park Advisory Council is excited to share the latest round of designs with you. Alderman Tunney, the Cubs, and the Advisory Council have worked together to come up with this amazing design. Some highlights are:

  • water feature
  • three separate play areas for different age groups
  • shaded picnic tables and toddler play area
  • huge open turf area
  • customized representations of famous chicago sky scrapers

This design is still preliminary, but we believe it incorporates what the community has requested in the new park.
