Community Plaza and Roller Rink on Madison

Saturday, June 5 marked the groundbreaking on a new community plaza and roller rink in West Garfield Park. This project is part of a joint initiative between Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, 28th Ward Alderman Jason Ervin, members of the Garfield Park Rite to Wellness Collaborative (including GPCC), residents, Studio Gang, and the Goldin Institute. The plans for this plaza emerged from community members as a way to create safe gathering spaces and opportunities for youth programming for residents of Garfield Park.
