VOTE TODAY! New Playground Equipment for Ravenswood Manor Park


Hello Neighbors,

The Horner Park Advisory Council (HPAC) is a volunteer organization that oversees fundraising and programming at Horner, Manor, Buffalo and Jacob parks. HPAC was notified that the playgroup equipment at Manor Park will be replaced as part of the Chicago Plays program. HPAC was given a very short deadline in order to provide feedback on the playground design.

If you could kindly take a few minutes to complete the linked survey below indicating your choice for the playground design, it would be greatly appreciated. Parents of small children are especially encouraged to participate as you probably have the most experience with the various types of equipment and would know what would work well at Manor Park.

There is a space at the end of the survey for free-form comments. If you have additional questions or concerns that you would like raised to HPAC regarding this program, please let me know and I’ll forward them along to HPAC.

Thank you for your participation.

Gretchen Helmreich
President, HPWNA


New Playground Equipment for Ravenswood Manor Park

Your voice is needed NOW.

Ravenswood Manor Park was recently nominated for a Chicago Plays grant, which is jointly administered by Chicago Park District and Friends of the Parks.

After being nominated, the Chicago Park District asked the Horner Park Advisory Council (HPAC) to gather input on four design options. The options show a variety of styles of new play equipment, but all of the options include new engineered wood fibar ground surface. Please voice your opinion on the designs by filling out this survey by 5:00pm Thursday Nov. 13. If you have questions, concerns or would rather not have new playground equipment at all please send us your comments in the space made available in the form.
