Illinois State Senate District 13 issued the following announcement on Jan. 22.
State Senator Robert Peters (D-Chicago) announced Wednesday that the Chicago Park district will receive a $625,000 grant to reconstruct Jackson Park.
“Jackson Park is an essential part of our community, and it has needed maintenance for some time,” Peters said. “I’m glad the Chicago Park District will receive the funds it needs to give Jackson Park the renovations that the people in our neighborhood who use it deserve.”
The grant will be provided as part of the Open Space Land Acquisition and Development program administered by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, which will fund nearly $30 million for Illinois park projects in 2020.
