Maggie Daley Park Play Garden Opens Saturday

December 12, 2014

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the children's playground — a three-acre play garden — will also be open for the first time, featuring a collection of slides and an “enchanted forest.”

 

“Slide Crater” will include a twisting spiral and a slide that can fit two kids side-by-side. Another one is a whopping 30-foot drop from the top to bottom.

 

The playground also features Geo-foam created hills, picnic tables and 1,400 trees.

 

“The trees that had been removed [from Daley Bicentennial Plaza] have been dried and preserved upside down. They’re these big structures, turned upside down, like an enchanted forest area for kids,” O’Neill said. “You get a feel that you’re in a completely different area, and it’s like a little bit of a vacation.”
