Playgrounds

Outdoor recreation is recognized by early childhood educators as a critical foundation for the future learning of our young children. More than just a place to play, playgrounds also support physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of our young children. Many Chicago Park District playgrounds feature colorful elements, soft surfacing and accessible play equipment for children of all ages and abilities.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel's Chicago Plays! Program

Launched by Mayor Emanuel and the Chicago Park District in March 2013, the new “Chicago Plays!” Playground Program is a five-year playground renovation project. The program targets the replacement of equipment at over 300 aging playgrounds throughout the city. The Chicago Park District is working closely with Park Advisory Councils and the Chicago Parks Foundation, the exclusive philanthropic partner of the Chicago Park District as well as Friends of the Parks, in the implementation of this program.
