Gov. Pritzker has announced that Tier 3 mitigation measures will begin throughout the state on Friday. Be sure to review the new regulations.

Flashback: At the turn of the century, Chicago’s children were hurting from too few parks. This movement changed that.

Ron Grossman’s article in The Chicago Tribune reminds us about the need for large parks in cities, especially for the well-being of our children. In the early 1900s, Chicago parks superintendent J. Frank Foster declared, “Congested, small, overcrowded playgrounds do not fill the demand and do not exert the influence on the children exerted by the large playgrounds, where they can feel and enjoy their freedom, can play without restraint and direction, and will not be compelled by large numbers to await their turn.” This remains true today. Over a century later, our children need green space more than ever. Support the North Branch Park & Nature Preserve plan to establish 24 acres of publicly-owned riverfront park and nature preserve along the Chicago river between North Ave. and Cortland St. Engage with the North Branch Park Preserve here: https://www.northbranchparkpreserve.org/growth Read more about J. Frank Foster and his fight for parks here: https://www.chicagotribune.com/history/ct-opinion-flashback-childrens-playgrounds-chicago-parks-20201113-dl63lcwfc5d5blo6dfoyan3ddy-story.html READ MORE
