McKinley Park Play Garden Fundraiser
Sat, March 25, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM CDT
Some of our best childhood memories are of playing outside, catching bugs, building forts out of sticks, and making mud pies. City kids lack consistent access to natural spaces and experiences, but we have a chance to give the children of the McKinley Park neighborhood of Chicago a space to safely play with nature.
The McKinley Park Play Garden will be a community-led space where neighbors can connect while children explore and make their own nature memories. We envision a play stage for children to entertain each other and their parents, where area schools and community groups can gather for performances. Circling the garden will be a forest climbing path kids can traverse. The flagpole will be surrounded by a multi-level fortress and will host a bat house at the top. Kids will be able to concoct all kind of “tasty” stone soups in the mud kitchen. Kids will engage their imaginations in the shipwreck gravel pit.
Please join us for an evening of celebration and fundraising as we work to bring a Nature Play Garden to the McKinley Park neighborhood. Drinks and light appetizers will be served.
We have set a goal of raising $15,000 during this campaign.
