Bucktown's Holstein Park Extends Pools Hours

Michael Hamrick - Tuesday, September 06, 2016

Traditionally, the Chicago Park District Pools close for the season on Labor Day. But this year, Bucktown's Holstein Park has decided to keep their beautiful pool open. This comes as great news in the wake of warm temperatures still predicted to be looming on the horizon this week. Today, for example, the forecast predicts a high of 91 degrees....in Chicago....in September. Tomorrow it will be 92 degrees. 

That being said, the Holstein Park Swimming Pool is scheduled to stay open until September 30, 2016.

The pool is located in the park at 2200 N. Oakley Avenue and opens at 10am daily. If you've never been, it's a little hidden jewel in the middle of the community. The pool spans 50 yards and the depth ranges from 3 feet to 11 feet. A full schedule of hours is located on the Chicago Park District Website. For additional information head to chicagoparkdistrict.com.

Street Sweeping Begins Tomorrow April 1st

Michael Hamrick - Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Spring is here and we couldn't be happier. But that also means, if you're not careful, you may be hit with a Chicago fine. Two instances that you should be aware of include:


Dog License Laws

We in Wicker Park & Bucktown certainly do love and embrace our dogs. But you may not be aware of the fact that your dog must be registered with the City of Chicago to stay at dog boarding and daycare facilities and/or to play in a dog park. If you haven't registered your pooch yet. You may want to. Dog parks like Wicker Park's dog park on the South end of the park at  1425 N. Damen Avenue and Churchill Park at 1825 N. Damen Avenue could receive surprise visits from animal control.

For additional information: How To Register Your Dog.

 

 

Street Sweeping Fines

April marks the beginning of Chicago's street sweeping season. So if you don't want to get a ticket be sure to be aware of street sweeping schedules and check the signs posted on streets...especially those side streets. You can find the schedule by Ward right here. Alderman Moreno also offers a text messaging reminder for the 1st Ward. So sign up if you're likely to forget. It can save you big bucks.
