LINCOLN PARK — A "cultural gem" stands to get a little buffing thanks to a mayoral initiative to repair and renovate Chicago Park District field houses.
The Lincoln Park Cultural Center, 2045 N. Lincoln Park West, is one of 20 Park District buildings slated to receive much-needed repairs as part of a $26 million program announced to "Save Chicago's Treasures" earlier this week.
"Some of our field houses are more than 100 years old,“ Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement. “This is why ‘Save Chicago’s Treasures’ is so critical. Maintaining the city’s historic neighborhood gems are the essential investments that improve the quality of life for residents, build strong neighborhoods and create a better Chicago."
