The Friends of Peterson Park are raising funds to complete the project of providing a new play structure where the pirate ship used to be.Thanks to Alderman Laurino and Representative D’Amico we have raised $46,000 in grants.

Every additional dollar we raise will be matched by the Chicago Park District for an additional 33 cents. That is an additional $330 dollars for every $1,000 dollars we raise. Donate today and help us reach our goal . . .beautiful new playground equipment!
