Modernize Logan Boulevard Skate Park
The current skatepark was built in 2007 to test the project's viability and community impact. The project was successful. The Phase 1 installation was built with modular, temporary steel/wooden features. This proposal requests funding for Phase 2, where existing modular features would be replaced with standardized, permanent, concrete construction.

The Logan Boulevard Skatepark Renovation is essential for retaining the park and its benefits for users. It was designed in partnership with renowned skatepark designers/developers with input from Chicago residents to produce a representative public space that reflects the diversity and number of users it serves. In the ensuing years since Phase 1, the temporary features have deteriorated. The proposal will require an Intergovernmental Agreement with the Park District. Funding will come from a 40/40/20 framework: 40 percent from the Chicago Park District, 40 percent from state and local officials, and 20% through public and private sponsorships.
