The long – awaited new playground is made possible through a significant financial contribution from the community through Grow with Gompers fundraising;
with a majority of the project’s budget fulfilled through substantial funding from three public sources:
the Chicago Park District,
the state of Illinois through State Representative John D’Amico, 15th District; and the city of Chicago through Alderman Margaret Laurino, 39th Ward.
2008, the Grow with Gompers committee of the North Mayfair Improvement
Association, has actively worked towards building a new playground in
partnership with the Chicago Park District and with the support of our
elected officials, area families and businesses.
Now, in October 2012,
the playground will be ready for playtime!
