The Chicago Recovery Plan is enabling investment in neighborhood park improvements, including beautification, expansion of recreation, and accessibility.

Goals of the program include:

  • Chicago Splash projects: replacement of aged water features and infrastructure to provide new play features while also removing lead lines and improving water conservation.
  • Vacant Lot Pocket Parks: transform vacant lots into pocket parks with fencing, lighting, benches and landscape. Develop park program with local community stakeholders.
  • Youth Sport Artificial Turf Fields: construct new artificial turf fields to enhance program offerings to local youth. Scope to include football/soccer or baseball based on local demand. Turf fields are increasingly popular as they expand program time on fields otherwise closed due to wet conditions.
  • Pickleball Mania: to meet the growing popular demand for pickleball, build new pickleball courts across the city while also refurbishing existing tennis courts.
