I invite you to join me, the Chicago Park District and members of the Loyola Park Advisory Committee as we cut the ribbon on the new playground at Loyola Park. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take this Saturday, October 8th, 9:30 a.m. at Loyola Park, 1230 W. Greenleaf Ave. (at the Lake).
In the past three years nine park playgrounds in the 49th Ward have been entirely rebuilt through the Chicago Plays! program and Touhy Park’s playground was rebuilt through my Participatory Budgeting process. Once Loyola Park and Leone Park playgrounds are completed we will have 12 brand new playgrounds for families to enjoy.
We are celebrating this weekend fully aware that cold weather may put a damper on any outdoor events and this weekend’s weather should be lovely. We expect completion of the Leone Park playground by mid-November.
I hope you and your family can attend Saturday morning’s celebration!
