Important Community Meeting Regarding West Ridge Nature Play Area
The Chicago Park District’s rules have changed. To keep our Nature Play Area, we must meet the new Nature Oasis Program requirements through an approval process. However, the program also gives us a unique opportunity to design, fund and improve what we have started.
We will hold an organizational meeting on October 23, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. The meeting will take place at Green Briar Park fieldhouse, 2650 W. Peterson Ave.
We cannot overemphasize how important this meeting is for our community’s children who enjoy the nature play area. It is an important first step in the implementation process for a vital and enjoyable Nature Playspace for our children, school groups, and community youth.
At the meeting, you will learn what our community needs to do to keep and enrich our play area and to begin to carry out the planning process. We encourage you to share your ideas. What would you like to see in the play area? How do you envision it being used? Bring your ideas to the meeting and bring a neighbor with you!
We are looking forward to seeing you at this important meeting. If you can come, please RSVP to Arlene Brennan at Brennan200@yahoo.com.
Also, please let us know if you have questions and/or need childcare for this meeting.
