The Nature Play Space at Clark Park is a long planned and anticipated new feature of the park. Community members, businesses, elected officials, the Chicago Park District, social and athletic organizations have come together to financially support this dream.
Each contributor will receive public thanks and a lasting memorial to them and their organization at the Nature Play Space. Memorials will include a donor board with the level of participation as set forth below. A sponsored feature at the park will contain the name of the sponsor/donor on a plaque. There also will be a brick garden feature near the entrance which will be a memorial to donors. Thanks so much for reviewing our plan and vision for this addition to Clark Park honoring kids of all ages!
