Chicago Plays! Highlights the Importance of Parks and Playspaces!

Specify Alternate Text

Cities around the country are recognizing the importance of parks and recreation spaces and the sense of pride and community they can bring to neighborhoods. Chicago is taking a lead on this with the Chicago Plays! initiative. Launched in Spring of 2013, Chicago Plays! has a goal to build and improve parks throughout the city so that every Chicagoan is within a ten minute walk of a park.

BCI Burke is excited to be part of the fun and has thus far installed numerous colorful and exciting playgrounds. Check out the most recent installation photos below!
