City Breaks Ground at Harding Playground

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsMayor Rahm Emanuel and Superintendent Michael P. Kelly broke ground on a new playground at Harding Playground, located at 3921 W. Division Street. Harding Playground was chosen as one of the first 50 of 300 aging playgrounds that will be completely rehabilitated as part of the Chicago Plays playground renovation program. Last March, the Mayor announced that over the next five years, the Chicago Park District will rebuild, repair and/or refurbish 300 playgrounds in communities across Chicago. In order to prioritize equipment replacement, the Chicago Park District worked with the Friends of the Park organization to seek community input and determine those parks and neighborhoods in greatest need. The program targets the replacement of equipment at over 300 aging playgrounds throughout the city. Immediate work plans currently scheduled include the completion of 50 playground upgrades by fall, 2013.
