Mayor Daley helped cut the ribbon to open a new playground Saturday in Chicago's Washington Park neighborhood. The new playground was made possible through proceeds of the 2005 and 2006 Lollapalooza music festivals, as well as by money raised by the Parkways foundation.

The playground is fully accessible and features plaques highlighting significant events and contributors to the neighborhood.
