The Chicago Park District has begun replacing the old playground equipment in Ravenswood Manor Park with new, safer equipment.  This is a part of Mayor Emanuel’s Chicago Plays Program, where more than 300 playgrounds will be replaced over three years throughout the city.

“We are shooting to have the whole Ravenswood Manor Playground finished, weather permitting, by May 1, so it won’t interfere with the Summer Concerts,” said Tom McManamon, Horner Park Supervisor, who oversees Ravenswood Manor Park.

“We polled the neighbors, and got more than 300 responses on the choice of the new playground layout. We think the kids and parents in the community will love the new equipment, which will be safer than before.

“As part of the project, the Park District will also put a new coat of stain on the Pergola.

“I am so excited how this is all coming together, and a lot of it is due to the good work of the Horner Park Advisory Council,” added McManamon.
