Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference
Parks Web

Chair: Gary Ossewaarde (email, or 773-773-947-9541) and Louise McCurry, (email or 773 844-2225). We have been working creating and coordinating and giving small grants to PACs for as many area parks as possible. Please contact us with questions about a PAC for your park.
We also work for great suites of programs and workdays*. HPKCC contributed to, as parks committee members the 2016 Neighborhood Enhancement Grants Committee- see the July 6 release of the winners - special congratulations to Cornell Park PAC!

Our parks range from vest pocket to neighborhood parks (some with regional attractions) to the big regional parks that surround Hyde Park on three sides. A few have active councils. Their schedules are found in PAC Meeting Schedules (check often as schedules change). The Conference provides support services for and has special ties to the councils for Nichols Park (an HPKCC affiliate) and Elm Park. If you see something happening in a park that shouldn't be, call 911 and Park Security 312 747-2193. To learn about our parks and their events, visit PARKS HOMEPAGE and navigate.

For Permits, go to the park district website—search special events permits or permits (latter will bring you to all, including baseball fields.)

The folks at the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference welcome your comments and help. E-mail ord call the chairs.
