A walk around Welles Park, Lincoln Square
Most Wednesdays I can be found walking around Ravenswood and Lincoln Square with my son. Some days I hit the Used Books store. Others, it's coffee at <Perfect Cup or <The Grind. Hair cut at Hair for Less (ask for Elena) then listen to some music and pick up a CD at Laurie's Planet of Sound. Ryne is just along for the ride, spreading cheer to all the local business owners. Although, I think Laurie's is his favorite spot... he likes to rock out.
But, then there is the "outdoorsmen" in us... a walk around Welles Park (also the fields make for the neighborhood's largest changing table).
Tennis, dancers practicing their trade and horseshoe pits....Maybe it's a German thing, but there wasn't a family party or camping trip where we didn't play horseshoes. I've killed a few evenings here, scoring ringers.
Or, take a dip in the field house pool.
Welles Park has many events throughout the year. Check in with the Alderman's office, Lincoln Square Chamber of Commerce, Old Town School of Folk Music and the Chicago Park District for activity schedules... for kids and you.
