KENMORE PLAYLOT (3141 N. Kenmore) - Renovated and re-opened on October 12, 2013!  This is a great neighborhood park for all to enjoy.

 

MARTIN PLAYLOT (922 W. Fletcher) - This park has just been selected for renovation and updating by the Chicago Park District.  This will likely take place in 2016!

 

WEISMAN PARK (901 W. Oakdale) - This park is one of the gems of Central Lakeview and its three water features spray pad is big hit for kids and parents alike in the summer. This space was completely renovated in 2005 through the fund raising efforts of the Weisman Park Advisory Council. Since the $400,000+ renovation, the Council raised additional funds for upgrades and improvements that include landscaping, a mosaic water fountain, shade shelter, additional natural seating, benches and an oversized blackboard. This October 2015 the Council installed a butterfly garden. About 4 dozen shrubs should start with purple blooms next summer and last until the fall. This landscaping project is the 4th improvement the Council has added.
