Chicago Park District online registration begins today at 9am.  Make sure you get into the programs you are hoping for and get them into your wishlist now!  It makes checking out much quicker.  Also, remember tot/preschool programs at Commercial Park (like soccer and playgroup) are limited to online registration and they tend to fill up quickly so don’t delay.

Here’s to a beautiful fall at the park!

Please join us Tuesday June 15th at 7:30 Commercial Park Advisory Council Meeting in the field house .

Open to the public and a great way to find out what is going on at the park.

This meeting is particularly special as it is time to bid  a fond farewell to Kate Mell and Dave Stumm, two very long-time supporters of the park, who are, sadly, moving away.  Kate and Dave were instrumental in starting the Commercial Park Advisory Council 10 years ago (going on 11) and have been crucial to the success of events like the Holiday Party,  Halloween Party and the  Garage Sale Fundraiser.  Together they have worked tirelessly to make Commercial Park and huge asset to the East Village neighborhood.  They will surely be missed.

We also have board nominations coming up in July with elections in August.  This year’s available positions are President, Treasurer and Publicist.  We will also be filling a newly vacant secretary position.  These positions hold a two-year term and anyone interested is urged to come Tuesday to get all the details.

Thank you Kate & Dave and other outgoing board members
