After complaints of graffiti, vandalism and general wear and tear at Lakeshore East Park, repairs are finally coming.
According to a letter from the Office of Alderman Brendan Reilly, Magellan Development Group, the park’s developer, have long term improvements planned. These include replacing the play area surface material in the tot lot and new playground equipment that will offer more activities for children of all ages.
Gabby Hart, the director of planning and development for Reilly’s office, confirmed the plans. “Plans are in place for full replacement of the playground surface and upgrades to the playground equipment are planned as well,” Hart said.
Hart said the tot lot will be closed when repairs are being made, but will otherwise remain open throughout the project.
Repairs to the surface area are already underway. The other improvements are expected to take place over the next few months and be completed by the end of the year.
