PLAYGROUND REPLACEMENT PROGRAM
The Chicago Park District in partnership with Friends of the Parks intends to invest inneighborhoods across the city by launching the Chicago Plays! Playground EquipmentReplacement Initiative. This new program is designed to replace the playground equipment at 35Chicago parks and help make playgrounds safer and more accessible for all Chicago residents.The Chicago Plays! Playground Equipment Replacement Program provides a unique opportunityfor community groups and neighborhood associations to have a voice in the selection process. Theplaygrounds chosen this year will be based on a community application process. We want to hearfrom you on how your community will benefit from a new playground.To begin the process, complete the application and collect the necessary materials fromcommunity members and your Alderman. The program is open to community and neighborhoodorganizations such as Park Advisory Councils, Adopt-a-Park groups, scouting troops, block clubs,neighborhood associations, churches, Chamber of Commerce, or any other community-basedorganization.Community organizations should demonstrate a strong support for a new playground through itscare and maintenance. In addition to completing the application, communities that receive newplaygrounds are expected to adopt their playground to help maintain and keep it clean. Theremay even be some opportunities for organizations to help put the finishing touches on the newplaygrounds. Friends of the Parks can provide on-going assistance in order to help your grouporganize community clean up days throughout the year.The Chicago Plays! Playground Equipment Replacement Program provides for the removal of oldequipment and the installation of new playground equipment.Look for a full announcement of playgrounds scheduled for rebuilding in April!
