Cole Park renovations

If you've been paying attention to the 6th Ward Chicago FB page, the official page for Ald. Roderick Sawyer, you will see a seven-picture album of pictures that show the playground there being rebuilt. The caption for all the pictures show it's to honor the late Police Officer Thomas Wortham who was killed near Cole Park last year.

Hmmm, it's still odd to see Rahm Emanuel as Mayor and it's been what two or so months already!

A random question based on a comment made to the album. Would closing Cole Park rid Chatham of crime?


  1. No it wouldn't. A complete remodel with a "Real" fieldhouse would assist in deterring crime. We need to get more programming(Dance, photograghy, arts&crafts, etc) in the parks. Our 6th ward parks are being disrepected by the Chicago Park District
    Look at the capital improvement plan for our parks and you will see there are little to no improvements planned

  2. I agree, the park itself isn't the root of crime. More activity and programming in the park might stave off the criminal element.
