Last fall, we told you about plans to replace the play areas at Seger Park at 10th & Lombard. At that time, the playground equipment had been torn out and the playground looked a little barren.

Back in September

Well, the construction in the park finished up back in January, and the kiddies have been enjoying the new setup ever since. And with the weather (slowly, slowly) warming back up, it’s fair to expect the number of kids having the time of their lives to steadily increase in the coming weeks and months. And why not? The new playground look great.

If you’re looking for an excuse to visit the still-new park, might we suggest attending the first ever Art in the Park event, taking place tomorrow (Saturday) from 11 til 3 at Seger Park. The event is perfect for kids, with crafts, performances, and tasty refreshments. And if they get bored with the event offerings, there’s always the playground to enjoy.

Seger Park is one to keep an eye on, as their renovation work is not yet finished. The second phase of the park’s renovation, which will include a re-imagined water feature in the middle of the park, is still to come. Friends of Seger Park are still raising money for this, but once they’re able to move forward with it, an already wonderful public space will be even better.
