Park District promises more neighborhood offerings this summer

Chicago Park District officials gave details at a Wednesday board meeting of their summer ‘Night Out in the Parks’ initiative, which is part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s plan to provide more cultural offerings outside of downtown.

Adam Schwerner, director of natural resources at the Park District, promised that the summer initiative would deliver 750 citywide cultural and arts activities in 230 different parks. Those activities will include 200 total movies in neighborhood parks and six classical musical concerts in parks located throughout the city.
