Saturday's pleasant fall weather provided perfect conditions for raking leaves.The group Friends of the Parks partnered with the park district for the "Great Rake Off." Families gathered to rake more than a dozen city parks, including Garfield Park on the West Side.

Organizers say the event gives families a chance to provide a service to the community while having a good time and getting some exercise outdoors.
