Cornell Square Park breaks ground on new playground

November 9, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Mayor Rahm Emanuel attended Saturday's ground breaking at Cornell Square Park in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

By spring, a new playground, complete with a water park for summer use, will be in place for families in the area.

Back in September, 13 people were hurt when a shooting broke out at the park, including a 3-year-old boy.

Six men are now facing charges in that shooting.
