LOGAN SQUARE — In Logan Square, people are swinging into fall — literally.

Several swings, made with wood and rope, have popped up throughout the neighborhood as of late.

There's one in the grassy area near the Logan Square Monument, one in a parkway along Logan Boulevard and a couple in Palmer Square Park. They're all tied to tall trees.

So far, it's unclear who's responsible for the swings. But, just like the communal trampoline, one thing is for sure: People are loving them.
