From State Rep. Sara Feigenholtz:
"Thanks to years of hard work and collaboration, Gill Park [825 W Sheridan, at Broadway] is getting a new playlot. Demolition on the existing playlot is expected to begin within the next month, followed by construction of the new playlot which should be complete by September.While this is a block south of Uptown's border, Gill Park is a the closest playlot for many Uptown children. We're happy to see the complete turnaround of that intersection in recent years, and we know a few kids who are thrilled about getting a new place to play.
Special thanks to Alderman Cappleman and Cubs Charities for supplementing city funds to complete this project. This project could not have been completed without the fundraising efforts of neighborhood groups and residents. This new playlot will be a welcomed addition to the East Lakeview neighborhood."
