Is Gold Coast's Mariano Park in danger? You can act now.

A Curbed Chicago story today alerted me to trouble at tiny Gold Coast Mariano Park.
It appears the Chicago Park District has been seeking bids for the concession space at the park that could alter the entire park itself. Respected neighbor and business Whispers Coffee and Tea (1031 N State St, Chicago, IL 60610) lease is reported as up in November.

Lynn Becker has the goods on the whole story.

We've written about the park previously as a great little open space to enjoy the surrounding bustle of tony Gold Coast shopping, restaurants, bars, tourists and locals. If you'd like to keep Mariano Park looking like it does today check out Save Mariano Park website and contact your local city officials, the Mayors office and share this.
