Grant Park's new Maggie Daley Park is beginning to look like what will ultimately become a public park space. No longer covered in snow, and only partially covered in Geofoam, sections of the park's play equipment has arrived from Germany and has begun to rise. Crews have already started hauling and dumping soil throughout the 20 acre park, which still has roughly 25% of the Geofoam left to place. The north end of the park will feature an ice skating "ribbon" and climbing walls. The southern end will feature the children's play equipment with water features, and mini-golf facilities. Although the park won't be completely finished until next summer, the Chicago Park District plans on having a soft opening this November for the sections that will be completed by then.
