The Cliff Dwellers

Friends of the Parks presents keynote speaker Bill Latoza, Architect and Principal of BauerLatoza Studio. As an architect at the Chicago Park District, Latoza worked with Walter Netsch as part of a professional studio of architects and landscape architects. Latoza will speak on Walter Netsch’s Legacy in Chicago’s Parks. Walter Netsch brought planning, historic preservation and excellence in design to Chicago’s parks and has had a great influence on Chicago’s parks and playgrounds.

We will also be paying tribute to Walter’s wife, Dawn Clark Netsch, an Illinois professor of law and politician. A member of the Democratic Party in the United States, she served in the Illinois State Senate, as Illinois Comptroller, and in 1994 was the first woman to be nominated by a major political party to run for Governor of Illinois.
