CHICAGO — The city will aim to rehabilitate or build playgrounds at 103 parks across the city this year, according to an announcement from the mayor's office.
The project is part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's "Chicago Plays!" program, which launched in March 2013.
In a statement Thursday, Emanuel again touted the program, saying the Chicago Park District will complete work on playgrounds by November 2014. This year, the program will target parks across the city from West Englewood to Edison Park.
The program aims to rehab or build a total of 300 parks in the next four years.
Each individual project costs about $125,000, according to a Park District spokeswoman. The total cost of the program is estimated to be $37,500,000, according to a statement.
