New Park Meeting Tonight November 17 at 7:30 p.m.

New Park Coming to 16th and Wabash
Alderman Fioretti and the Chicago Park District have scheduled a meeting to discuss the proposed park at 16th St. and Wabash Ave. The meeting will take place on Wednesday November 17, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. at the 1st District Chicago Police Station, 1718 S. State St.

Dog and People Friendly
This park is a long time coming, but it promises to be a great addition and asset to the residents of the South Loop, whether you're a dog owner or not. Although the park has dogs and dog owners in mind, the CPD will present a park design that will benefit and accommodate pet owners and non-pet owners alike.Two recently park additions to the city, Mary Bartleme Park (Adams-Sangamon) and Lakeshore East, have successfully integrated dog areas into the park designs.

Residents that have questions prior to the meeting are encouraged to contact Maritza Garcia in the 2nd Ward community service office at 312-263-9273 or

  1. These are both great parks, and I hope something similiar is proposed for the 16th/Wabash lot. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the meeting tonight, so I hope there will be reports and design plans posted on what was discussed.

    Granted I took a workout class in Lakeshore East over the summer, and you still had to watch out for dog poop in the green areas because owners still let their dogs off the leash even with the fenced in dog area. Since the playground was fenced off too, I guess at least you didn't have to worry about your kids playing in the dog poo if you stayed out of the open areas. Disappointing that a few people always have to ruin things for everyone else.
