Located in the Edgewater community this family destination recently received a facelift of sorts:a new playground! The new playground replaces a smaller, older playground, has soft surfacing and complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to be accessible to children with disabilities.
In addition to accessible, the new playground features colorful age appropriate action packed play areas with swings, slides, and climbing elements that keep children busy, soft surface tiles and rubber surfacing, new walkways, new fencing, improvements to existing spray pool, trash receptacles, new drinking fountain, benches, and new landscaping.
During the summer months children can create unique arts and crafts outdoors when the Chicago Park District drives its “Craftmobile” into Cedar Play. This touring four-wheeled wonder is filled with fun art projects and activities for children ages 6 and under. Art instructors will help kids create sidewalk murals, wax-resistant drawings, stained glass window hangings and more. And it’s free! All supplies are provided.
