This summer my six year old spends his days at camp swimming, going on cool field trips and playing Pokemon cards. My girl and I have been left with many hours of free time.
In an attempt to be outside as much as possible, we spend at least 2 hours a day at our neighborhood park. My daughter seems happy going down the same slides and swinging on the same swings, but I am tired of the same old park; especially thinking there will be at least two more months of this monotony.
I know Chicago has countless parks, so I am asking you, my readers, to tell me your favorite parks in the city. My daughter and I will visit these parks you rave about and rate them for you.
Adam’s Playground Park
Montgomery Ward (Erie) Park
Berger Park Cultural Center
Indian Boundary Park
I figure there are about 8 weeks left of summer and I have 8 parks above to visit. Each week I will write the good, bad, and parking situation for each playground.
Did I miss any top playgrounds in the city? Please share and I will add them to my list.
One more thing, if any of you want to join me on these excursions; I’d love to have the company and the opinions.
