City parks to benefit from NATO Summit capital

October 6, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Riis is one of six parks the mayors says will undergo improvements paid for by leftover capital raised for last spring's gathering of international leaders and by Park District capital funds.

In total, $6.5 million will be invested in expansion and improvements of recreation facilities at the parks, as well as four Park District boathouses along the Chicago River.
