Chicago RedEye provides an update on the Maggie Daley Park ice ribbon. When it does open, the meandering ice ribbon lined with pine trees will offer Chicagoans a cool experience that's different from Millennium Park, said Bob O'Neill, president of the Grant Park Conservancy. "It's a much more natural experience. It's a little bit of the country in the city. The skating ribbon is reminiscent of skating on an ice-covered creek or river."
