JPACThe Jackson Park Advisory Council (JPAC) is the body that monitors the park, represents the community and advises the Chicago Park District. We hold the district accountable for stewardship and preserve the park’s historic character and special natural areas. We also represent all park users and communities while seeking to reach the park’s highest potential. Weather Dependent- we will rechip the playground at the Fieldhouse at 6401 Stony Island. Or clear the debris from the lakefront beach at 57th Street Beach lakefront. In case of bad weather: we will be working on playground directly next to Fieldhouse allowing alternation of inside and outside time. If it rains we will do indoor youth sports areas restoration.
It's just more fun to rotate outside in the park than just spending all the service time indoors .
