A Tree Grows in Chicago?
I am so excited about our new neighborhood park being "created" here in the West Loop of Chi-town. It has been in the works for quite some years now but apparently, all the challenges and issues were settled and the construction has been well underway for the past few months.
I am fascinated that a barren, flat space, can be turned into something so wonderful with interesting sculpture and even several "hills"! And oh yeah, the trees too! With hard work and effort, not to mention some bulldozers and large machinery clanking and banging out our new little urban oasis, the neighborhood will be sporting a new look! A great effort to solidify the community spirit that is happening down here.
They tell us it will be open sometime around the beginning of July....it's fun to watch the neighborhood dogs as they walk by...I think they know that there's a new place that they will congregate and make some new friends!
I will post more pics to show the progress so stay tuned!
