Bonfire @ Touhy Park January 29th.

     A reminder to visit Touhy Park this coming Tuesday for a bonfire. The Chicago Park District is putting this event on. It will be from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. 

"In 1948, the district acquired 6.35 acres in Rogers Park, which was among the city's neighborhoods most in need of open space and recreational facilities. ........ Touhy Park was not completed until 1954. In the 1960s, the park district built an addition converting the original comfort station into a fieldhouse. "
