Join Friends of the Parks for the “Parks, Murals, and the Greenest Street in Chicago Bus Tour” on Sunday, September 7.  Hop on the bus with Friends of the Parks for a tour of some neighborhoods where Chicago “grew up”.  Park enthusiast Tom Drebenstedt will be talking parks, arts and community while discovering where Hardscrabble and Pilsen were born, raised, and now lead our city into the future.  On the tour we will visit the last remnant of the Illinois Michigan Canal, where the canal’s original mouth is found at Canal Origins Park. See Jens Jensen’s neighborhood park design at Dvorak Park. Enjoy the colorful murals and public art in Pilsen and see Chicago’s greenest street: The Cermak/Blue Island Sustainable Streetscape. Following the tour we will have lunch at a local Pilsen restaurant.
