NEAR NORTH SIDE — The Seward Park Advisory Council is seeking donations to buy the park some much-needed information kiosks.
Currently, Seward Park, 375 W. Elm St., doesn't have any outdoor information kiosks, which are essentially enclosed bulletin boards where flyers about neighborhood events, programs and meetings are posted.
The advisory council is looking to raise a total of $2,640 to buy two of them for the park.
"It's important that we continue to be a beacon for this community," said Claudette Roper, president of the advisory council. "The best way to do that is making sure all of the information is out there in a quick and accessible manner."
If enough money is raised, the kiosks would be placed near the park's busiest streets to inform residents about upcoming events and other pertinent information.
Established in 1908, Seward Park spans about seven acres on the Near North Side. It was among the Lincoln Park Commission's first parks, according to the Chicago Park District.
Those who would like to donate can do so by visiting the advisory council's online campaign.
