Playground

Botanical Heights Neighborhood Association’s most recent undertaking is the creation of a new playground on the┬ácorner of Thurman and Blaine, which will provide a safe and inspirational┬áplace for neighborhood children to play.

With a grant from KaBoom!, underwritten by PNC Bank, generous donations from Willert Home Products, Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, UIC, the GDC, a ton of preparation and planning by our Playground Committee, and sweat equity from 200 volunteers from PNC Bank, local businesses, and neighborhood residents, we were able to build our playground in a single day! It was a real community effort.
