AN 11 ACRE URBAN PARK
This civic park, an urban redevelopment initiative undertaken by the Town of Cicero in conjunction with the John Buck Company, features an interactive fountain with a surrounding pergola. Artfully arranged into activity zones anchored by a Performance Pavilion and a Concessions/Restroom Building, this family-friendly destination provides the amenities, as well as much needed green space, that make this park suitable for hosting festivals, a farmer’s market, movie night, and wide-range of other entertainment activities. The park structures of brick, exposed steel, and wood are transitional elements within this natural setting, and have a decidedly muscular presence. The strength of these materials reflects the surrounding urban fabric, working in conjunction with the landscaped environment to form a distinctive identity and a welcomed sense of place.
