According to Chicago Journal (North Grant Park Plans Tweaked, 8/16/2012) Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd) has stated in his email that the excisting ice rink, located in the north end of Grant Park will be replaced with a skating ribbon when the North Grant Park overhaul begins this fall. What caught my eye was this "The park district has committed to finding a location further south within Grant Park to locate a rink for team sports and recreation."
A rink for team sports? Park district organized hockey for south loop kids, maybe? Too good to be true? Does anybody know anything about this?
