Mayor Rahm Emanuel and members of the Rogers Park community met Friday at the construction site of a new playground at Touhy Park at 73rd and Paulina.

Touhy Park has not been renovated since 1990 and $450,000 will be invested in the park for a new playground, pathway improvements, lighting and landscaping.

There will also be a new bench, seating wall, drinking fountain and landscape improvements.
