April 26th - Park District Announces Filbert will be Renovated!
On April 26, 2012, the Chicago Park District told FRIENDS OF FILBERT PLAYLOT PARK that they had retained a landscape architect, Hitchcock Design Group, to design the new Filbert. HDG is moving very quickly with the playground design and documentation and will have preliminary plans ready to review with the community in mid-May. Filbert is scheduled to be fully renovated beginning late summer / early fall 2012 and will open to the public before the end of the year! While this is very exciting news, we still need to complete our fundraising by summer so we can afford all of the upgrades we’d like for the new park.
